This only happens for anonymous checkouts.  And I have no idea why cvs
would want to lock the directory at all if you are just doing a
checkout; as far as I understand the Cederqvist, this is only done when
a process needs write access.  Well, cvs speaks about a "read lock".
Maybe you can talk to the CVS maintainer.
