cvsnt must not start a lockserver when using a network drive - doing so 
would be to invite the gross error of having a lockserver per user.

There must be *one* lockserver, and it must be defined in the 
CVSROOT/config before using network shares like that.  It doesn't have 
to be on the same machine as the repository, but it must exist.
