Nope.  I'm still getting the same failure after making your change:

Hmmm... OK, I'll look into this more closely.

While I'm at it, I think I'll look into the discrepancy between documented behaviour of the 'cvs watch' commands and the actual behaviour. According to the documentation, if "files" mentions any directories, it should set the default attributes for that directory; cvs 1.11 only sets default attributes if "files" is omitted. I don't object to the behaviour, but it will make it difficult to implement any "rwatch" command in the future, since the rwatch will require a file or module specification.
