Interestingly I screwed up today. 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....
