I committed a test file just fine, except that now ViewCvs won't touch this
If I click a file that I have not yet committed changes to all is well and
the file displays and I can diff it etc. But if I do the same on this newly
committed file ViewCvs throws an error and displays this:

Python Messages:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "c:\programs\viewcvs\lib/viewcvs.py", line 2710, in main

File "C:\Programs\Python22\lib\string.py", line 187, in rfind
return s.rfind(*args)
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'rfind'

I looked into the RCS file and there was new stuff in each revision
description, three new lines like these:
permissions 666;
commitid 1ec3e2f12c87eee;
kopt kv;

If I remove them ViewCvs starts working again.

Is there anyone with any ideas on why it happened and how to solve this?
Is it only present in the CVSNT Daily Snapshot or is this something
Is there a viewcvs.py fix that covers this problem?
