in a particularly high volumne save session, I've noticed that rcs can get its knickers in a knot. when it does, sub _ci will throw an exception, leaving the ,v file locked.

this obviously leaves us in a state where the topic is no longer saveable, resulting in a not really helpful rcs error message.

I've got a fix set coded up, and am in the process of testing it. Marked as urgent so it gets noticed smile

it reall should not happen :/
