  Don't know if this has been reported yet but I ran
into a bug with cvs rename.

  If you rename a file, and then update it, but from some folder
other than the one where that file resides, then that update fails...
(and as a side-effect - deletes the existing file from the sandbox
altogether :-)) ).


  1. Rename FF/aaa.txt to FF/bbb.txt.
  2. Commit the FF folder.
  3. Now 'cvs update bbb.txt' from the FF folder works fine.
  4. 'cvs update FF/bbb.txt' from the FF's parent folder fails.

  This ofcourse makes the feature unusable via Tortoise CVS
as it does not change the current folder before issuing the
update command.

  Best regards,
