while trying Xcode's cvs integration, I found that in some situations,  
I may end up with a CVS/Entries file that is missing the newline  
character after the last line. When this happens, cvsnt doesn't seem  
to parse the last entry (the stock cvs neither, btw). A "csvnt  
update ." on the source directory will complain that the last file  
listed in the Entries file "is in the way"...

I'd suggest to be a little smarter about missing trailing newline  
character in the CVS/Entries - it shouldn't hurt to allow an Entries  
file w/o terminating newline character and it would help to avoid this  
confusing situation for the user...
