An attempt to check out the latest Boost aborted with this output:

cvs checkout: Updating boost/doc/html/boost/logic
cvs checkout: cannot create read lock in repository
`/cvsroot/boost/boost/doc/html/boost/logic': No such file or directory
cvs checkout: failed to remove lock dir
`/cvsroot/boost/boost/doc/html/boost/logic/#cvs.lock': No such file or
cvs [checkout aborted]: read lock failed - giving up

The command was:

cvs -z3 -d$CVS checkout boost

This is in accordance with the 1.33.1 Getting Started document, except
for the change from to

Does anybody else experience problems, or did I simply get the command
wrong, checking out some old, bogus repository? Is there simply a stale
lock hanging around?

Removing the entire checked-out part and trying again, cvs hung at
boost/wiki/index.html and wouldn't continue.
