How do you know? How do I know that you know and not assume? :)

See, it helps if you provide a sequence of commands and their outputs that
shows what you did to get where you are, and provides the information you
want me (or anybody else reading this thread) to have (which may include
cvs status or cvs log commands that you normally wouldn't use, but which
show the state of the file). It doesn't help much that you /explain/ it --
because there obviously is something that you are missing, or else it would

You also can try running the commit with the -ttt option.
