Commit checks out earlier versions of the files during the commit
process, naming them with a trailing revision number and tilde.
However, it does not clean up these files when the commit is finished,
even though they are of no practical value to the user.  The result is
that one must constantly look through the CVS directories for
trailing-tilde files and remove them.

(Note: I'm using remote CVS, if that's a factor.)

        cvs checkout
        <edit a random file>
        cvs commit
        ls *~
        Commit should remove its temporary files when finished.
