I would think the lock would remain, and the uncommitted modification
would have to be committed at a later point.

Is the issue that you are pointing out here "at what point is the
directory lock released?" If so, I would imagine it would be released
only when you either a) unlocked it explicitly, or b) committed the
directory itself.
