I intended to commit one file with minor changes in a directory and gave it a smallish log message. But contrary to what I intended I had selected the folder in the left hand panel of WinCvs instead of the file in the right hand panel and a few more files in a subdirectory got committed as well with the log message not relating to them at all.... But by using the admin command on them I could change the log message to a meaningful one. Strange that this would happen today a few hors afetr posting the reply above....
