I should have specified which version of the client I was using - 1.11.5. I
never noticed the problem you mentioned.

BTW, will this effort fix this problem:

D:\files\cvs\cvs-test>cvs-1.11.5 st jhyslop/mixedcase
File: no file mixedcase         Status: Needs Checkout

   Working revision:    No entry for mixedcase
   Repository revision: 1.2     /cvs/cvs-test/jhyslop/MiXeDcAsE,v

D:\files\cvs\cvs-test>cvs-1.11.5 st jhyslop/MiXeDcAsE
File: MiXeDcAsE         Status: Up-to-date

   Working revision:    1.2
   Repository revision: 1.2     /cvs/cvs-test/jhyslop/MiXeDcAsE,v
   Sticky Tag:          (none)
   Sticky Date:         (none)
   Sticky Options:      (none)

i.e. if I am working in a different directory, I must be case-correct when
specifying filenames. The interesting thing to note is that in the first
command, the client (1.11.5 again, BTW) finds the correct line in the
Entries file - note that in both cases, it correctly reports the repository
version as 1.2. The fix seems fairly easy - when sending the 'Argument
jhyslop/mixedcase' convert it to the correct case, extracted from the
Entries file (mind you, I haven't looked at the code to see if it is as easy
as it appears to be :-).
