I doubt that cvs admin can help you -- it interfaces to rcs, which
doesn't do per-directory locking.
More likely a lock file used when you made a checkin or checkout is
accidentally left behind. I believe you cannot remove this yourself
nor can I help you with it ([re]moving files in the CVS repository
tree is not for mere mortals). Submit a service request, they usually
take care of it within a few hours. (Click in the "Request Support"
entry in the SourceForge section of the left sidebar.)
