Misbehave in "cvs admin -m"

It seems that when you do 'cvs admin "-m1.1.1.1:Test msg" somefile.c' and
the revision doesn't exist, cvs gets the head revision and change
its log entry. Cederqvist just says that "-mrev:msg Replace the log message
of revision rev with msg.", so an error should be output, not just getting
the head and doing the thing.

By applying the patch attached (file admin.c) you get it right. I should
stress that things get worse if you do 'cvs admin "-m msg"' ,
without the file name and with a space between -m and the rev. This way,
head revisions of all files of the repository will get their log changed.

PS: I'm talking of cvs-1.11.9
