Under a second normally.. it's mostly the time taken to copy the file to 
rebuild it.  If there are hundreds of tags it slows down but you'd need 
a lot to get to 20 seconds a file.

You shouldn't be seeing lock contention at all unless there's a lot of 
activity on the server.  There were certain badly behaved autobuild 
systems that used 'cvs log' to determine the state of the file every 
couple of minutes. Those could bog down the server completely if they 
had more than one operation running.. however I haven't heard anything 
relating to them recently so either they've been fixed or they're not used.
