cvs diff --ifdef acts like -D date


From: Robert Smith
Subject: cvs diff --ifdef acts like -D date
Date: Fri, 11 Jul 2003 08:37:33 -0400
User-agent: Microsoft-Entourage/10.0.0.1309

The command
cvs diff --ifdef=SYMBOL

Gives the error:

cvs [server aborted]: Can't parse date/time: SYMBOL

As if I had typed: cvs diff -D SYMBOL

Background: 
diff -D SYMBOL and --ifdef=SYMBOL both do the same thing but
cvs diff -D expects a date and is a cvs specific command.

System: Mac OS 10.2.6
cvs --version:
