It looks like something started to go wrong about version 1.29
27/11/2002 12:57 UTC.  Up until that point everything was OK, then
somehow the deltas all got screwed up.

Could there be something else accessing or modifying the RCS file?  

I've just spent two hours staring at the same bit of code trying to
work out how it could generate that file, and drawn a blank.

What is your CVSROOT setting?  The output of 'cvs version' would be
handy, too.
