Using, if a filename contains an apostrophe ('), the output 
from 'cvs editors' is garbled. In this example only ".cvsignore" and 
"a'postrophe.txt" are actually edited, but this is the output:

.cvsignore      tmax    Thu Mar 15 20:44:14 2007 GMT    tmanote64       
a'postrophe.txt a'postrophe.txt Sat Sep  8 23:41:27 2007 GMT    
tmanote64    D:\mytest\sandbox

Note that the filename is listed instead of the user name, and note the 
additional (non-edited) files.
