Can you try adding it on Trunk/HEAD instead?
What $CVSROOT connection string did you use to create the sandbox?

Let's not do that yet - we'd also need .directory_history (if it exists)
and the CVSROOT directory. You can't send all that to the newsgroup
you'd need to send it to support at march-hare.com but we're too snowed
under to look at it right now anyway, and besides I think there are one
or two things left for you to try.

Not much - it generally means that it gave up looking for that file on
that branch - it could possibly mean that it couldn't find the physical
",v" file but usually not. This was a common problem with 2.5.03
because it gave up looking if the tag was not in the val-tags file -
hence why I thought upgrading to 2.5.04 RC would work it out for you.
