Yeah you really can't do two operations on the same sandbox at the same time... no locking... edit is particularly bad as it uses temp files (CVS/Notify) to store its data, so anything that sees that thinks there's an aborted edit operation and tries to complete it, resulting in a mess. Rewriting edit to remove that file is one of those things I've got on my priority list. Client side locking isn't something I've really thought about as cvs has never had it and nobody has complained until today :) Definately something to think about in the 2.6 timeframe (need to start writing these down somwhere as there are lot of them).
