I'm in the process of switching my team's source control from SourceSafe to
CVS (using CVSNT).  Everything has gone great, but there's been one little
issue that's bugged me.  When I invoke "cvs release -d somedir" on a
directory where I know all my changes have been committed, I get the message
"You have [1] altered files in this repository."  If I abort the release,
switch to somedir, and run "cvs -q -n update", CVS doesn't find any altered
files.  After some more experimentation, I found that "cvs release -d" would
always report one altered file, no matter how many files had actually been

Have I missed something somewhere?  When accessing the repository from
Solaris (client version 1-11-1p1), it seems to report the correct number of
altered files.  This is a small issue, everything else seems to work fine.
But it's bugging me, and possibly I've missed something.
