I've run into a problem with a 'cvs update -d' command, perhaps someone
could shed some light on it.

I have a SourceForge project (NAntContrib) that I retrieved with cvs.  I
then copied that project to another machine.  When I do a 'cvs update -d' I
get the following error on many (not all) files:

C src/Tasks/Msi/InstallerRecordReader.cs
cvs update: move away src/Tasks/Msi/InstallerSearchClause.cs; it is in the

If I do a 'cvs update' everything works fine, no conflicts.  Only one file
has been changed, and it shouldn't show a conflict until my patch gets
applied by one of the project developers.

If I go into one of the directories that showed the conflicts and do a 'cvs
update -d' it works fine.

My cvs client is 2.0.51d (installed with TortoiseCVS 1.8.7).

All the files show no changes as far as TortoiseCVS is concerned (all green,
except the one I changed).

Any suggestions?
