It also happened to me, when I committed the CVSROOT folder the
administrative database didn't get rebuilt. I solved the problem
as soon as I found that the code that checks if the database
has to be rebuilt makes a case-sensitive comparison with an hardcoded
_uppercase_ string "CVSROOT". Therefore if you checkout CVSROOT
cvs checkout cvsroot
or "CvsRoot" or any string different in case from "CVSROOT"
the checkout will succeed (because FAT and NTFS are case-insensitive
file systems) but commit will _not_ rebuild the administrative database.
You have to do
cvs checkout CVSROOT
Hope it helps,
