It does not work either. If CVSROOT files are updated at the end, you can
still fetch some new files and be able to fetch the old CVSROOT before the
update process will be able to do it. I believe that the LOCK file idea
should work pretty nicely. The update process goes like:

create LOCK
update repo
remove LOCK

While the client can simply:

while exist LOCK
