I see a variation of that message a lot on clients. It's generally caused by some background process running on the client that is locking directories that cvs update -P is trying to prune. The usual suspect is Microsoft Indexing Service, but anti-virus or other such scanners can also cause it. Arthur, is it possible that the message is really reporting a client error? Or perhaps an error with an automatic checkout process on the server? Boyd
