Hello list,

I've got a problem with a commit command that explicitly lists the
files to be committed. It will only commit the files in subdirectories
and ignore the ones in the current directory. These will be committed
when I issue the exact same command once again. There are no error

To reproduce create the following directory structure and import it:


Now, change both a.txt and b.txt and issue the following commit command
from within 'testcvs':

cvs -d :pserver:Marcel at localhost:/cvs commit -m "" sub/b.txt a.txt

I know that specifying the cvsroot is not necessary, but my problem is
that the cvs commands are issued by a tool (maven 2) that generates
them with this. I get the following response:

Checking in sub/b.txt;
/cvs/testcvs/sub/b.txt,v  <--  b.txt
new revision: 1.2; previous revision: 1.1

I'm using cvsnt on winxp pro sp2. The machine is not part
of a domain and in the server setting I've chosen run as client user.
User 'Marcel' is in the passwd file.

When I change the commit to:

cvs -d :pserver:localhost:/cvs commit -m "" sub/b.txt a.txt

it will commit both files. But again this is not under my control
because the command is generated. I would say that since I am already
in a working copy, cvs could completely ignore the -d parameter.

Any help would be appreciated.
