You should not use the cvs admin -l command at all!!! Read up on reserved edits instead, that will probably handle what you need. Or, why do you think you need to lock a file???? Normally CVS is used Concurrently (hence its name) so that several developers can work on the same project at the same time. CVS very nicely handles the problems where different developers edit the same file at the same time, no problems here. But it cannot merge changes done to a binary file, so for these you probably want to set up reserved edits so that only one developer at a time can hold the edit token. As I said, look up reserved edits and read up.
