That is not a reserved edit.

-c is for 'concurrent' and -x is for reserved - however 'reserved' makes
no sense if the user can override it on the command line - you are
supposed to set the file as reserved then it will always be reserver:

cvs update -k+x file.ext
cvs -f -m 'change file to reserved' file.ext

cvs edit -m "this is a reserved edit" file.ext
