That means that the server thinks there is a more recent version of the 
file available, as if someone else had committed that file after you had 
checked it out.

Yes, that's appropriate.

Normally, when you get the up-to-date check error, you have to do an 
update to merge in the latest changes to that file.  However, with the 
sequence you describe, that shouldn't happen (unless there is someone 
else with very good timing updating that file).

What version of server are you using?  You can check with "cvs version" 
in a sandbox (not the lack of a -).  What happens when you do a "cvs up" 
just before the commit?
