Doing cvs diff -N when I've added but not committed a file gives:

C:\cvs\Project>cvs diff -uN mydir
cvs server: Diffing mydir
Index: mydir/newfile.txt
RCS file: mydir/newfile.txt
diff -N mydir/newfile.txt
cvs [server aborted]: Cannot use reserved filename 'nul' on NT based

I'm trying to generate a patch that includes the added file. Why doesn't
this work?
