I've got no clue about what's going wrong.

I've set up CVSNT on an Windows 2000 Server machine (had the same problem on
a Windows XP machine). Created a repository and checked in some directories
and files. The run I wrote, automatically exports files from a 4GL tool
(Uniface) and checks them in. What is does is:

- Export the components of Uniface into the directories created for the CVS
repo (overwriting existing files in the directories and creating new ones
when not there already).
- execute a 'cvs update' for all the exported files
- execute a 'cvs add' for all the exported files
- execute a 'cvs commit -m "message" - to check them all in.

During the commit I get the following:

cvs commit -m "no message" abzpru03000.cmx (in directory
cvs server: Up-to-date check failed for `abzpru03000.cmx'
cvs [server aborted]: correct above errors first!

When I do an update I get the following:

cvs update abzpru03000.cmx (in directory C:\Propkit\src\cmx\)
cvs server: conflict: abzpru03000.cmx created independently by second party
C abzpru03000.cmx

WinCvs sees the file as altered (red page). During my test the output of
most of the files didn't really change, only the date/time stamp changed.

I really have to do a 'update -C' (get the clean copy) to get the following:

cvs update -C abzpru03000.cmx (in directory C:\Propkit\src\cmx\)
(Locally modified abzpru03000.cmx moved to .#abzpru03000.cmx.0)
cvs server: resurrecting deleted file abzpru03000.cmx
U abzpru03000.cmx

I've been working with CVS before (on a linux machine) and have never seen
this kind of problem. Can anyone tell me what going on?
