'loginfo' is supposed to create a temporary copy of the files being
checked in, on the server. It does not, however, create any files that
contain RCS keywords (well, OK, to be precise I've only tried it with
$Id$ and $Revision$).

How to reproduce:

Choose a directory within the repository (or create a new directory,
whatever). Edit CVSROOT/loginfo and add an entry for that directory:
cmd /C dir

'cd' into that directory. Create, add and check in a text file that does
not contain any RCS keywords. You should see a directory listing of the
temporary directory, including the text file. Modify the text file so it
includes $Id$ and check it in. The directory listing will no longer show
that file.
