OK.  Even though the code only runs on Red Hat servers - changed.

OK.  I think we can change the script as the situation is reported in

This stuck me as a good idea.  I have studied this issue a bit.
Informing the user they have 30 seconds to abort and then sleeping for
30 seconds does not work!  If the user aborts, the abort is captured
by the local client and then 30 seconds after the procedure started,
the server proceeds to commit the change.

I also investigated halting the commitinfo script with a read.  As
expected, there is no pipe back to the CVS client.

It looks like a passive warning system is the best I can do with
available resources.
