just cannot commit it. If we can get a change to commit, it works again.
This happens sporadically on files throughout our repository (maybe 1 file

crashing there. Do a 'cvs checkout CVSROOT' and look at each of the
There have been some odd reports of this happening but as far as I know
they do not relate to your example and were all fixed well before build
