But does the commit really finish? You may be seeing a file created 
by a previous successful commit.

Look at the file status. Suppose you have a *modified* file which you 
want to commit. Execute:

 >cvs status test.txt

and you get something like this:

    File: test.txt       Status: Locally Modified
    Working revision:    1.65    Tue Sep 19 00:12:00 2006
    Repository revision: 1.65    c:\cvsrepo/DINW/test.txt,v

See Status=Locally Modified, and Working revision: 1.65 (numbers are 

Then do a "cvs commit", but DONT include your required items in the 
message so it should FAIL.
Check the file status again. If the commit succeeded, you'll see a 
greater revision, and status = Up To Date.
If it didn't, you should see exactly the original values (same 
working revision, and still Locally Modified).
