That's wierd.  It looks like the temporary file that cvs builds the
checked out revisions in is disappearing in the fraction of a second
between cvs creating it, and cvs renaming it (the .new. file is built
on the client).

If something like that happened on the server it might explain the
delta text problems as well.
