[cvsnt] process unicode file incorrectly

When I have a file that has not changed contents but has a changed 
timestamp and is thus flagged as modified in WinCvs, what I usually 
do is cvs status and cvs sees that there are in fact no content 
changes and updates the Entries file to reflect the file's changed 
timestamp. Then the modified state in WinCvs is removed.

I think that the OP is referring to this behaviour and that it 
does not work for unicode files.

Best regards,

Bo Berglund

Looks fine. What is wrong?

No attachments on the list.  I have tried this and it works OK.  Are you

confusing conflict markers for corruption perhaps?
