If I try to rename file a to b, and then to rename b back to a, the cvs 
client hangs:

> cvs -v

Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.58d (client/server)
> cvs rename a b
> cvs ci -m ""
cvs commit: Examining .
cvs server: Examining .
/Test/rentest/.directory_history,v  <--  directory update
new revision: 1.2; previous revision: 1.1
> cvs rename b a
> cvs ci -m ""
cvs commit: Examining .
cvs server: Examining .

After printing the "cvs server" line, the clients seems to hang. Is this a 
known bug?
