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.
