Other cases?  As far as I know this is the first time I've
had a problem on Windows (I only use Windows for
simple stuff at home, the complex branches are at work).

And I don't know that this has anything to do with case
insensitivity.

I don't even have the ability to recompile CVS on Windows.
GCC doesn't appear to be one of the supported compilers
on Windows.

I do have the ability to look at code and send context diffs,
which is how I was able to guide other people through some
other bugs.

But I only have a problem with DEVEL-CVS, and I don't use
that file.

No.  I'm using the super-duper cvshome.org client-server stuff.

There is no devel-cvs in my CVS/Entries.

In fact, if I do a cvs log devel-cvs, not DEVEL-CVS, it
gives me the log of the DEVEL-CVS version, which
includes all the tags.

Ok.  I don't need new binaries for Windows then, 1.11.5 works
fine for my simple branch-less environment.

Maybe this thing with DEVEL-CVS is an old problem I've just
never noticed before?

BTW, this info-cvs you are talking about, is it mirrored into a
newsgroup?  It is a pity the CVS documentation doesn't mention
the newsgroup names, as I prefer newsgroups to mailing lists.

BFN.  Paul.
