Most likely what happened was this:

- Users A and B updated to version 1.114.
- User A modified and committed the file, creating version 1.115.
- User B modified the file, but his commit was blocked.
- User B did a "cvs update".
- User B decided not to complete the merge, and renamed his backup
  copy (which CVS creates automatically) on top of the marked-up merged
  result of the update.
- User B committed the file.

One of the developers in our project reported a
problem.He commited a file after fixing a bug as
revision number 1.115.Later some one commited another
revision of the same file(1.116).Now the first
developer updated his copy from the rep and ran the
program and noticed the same bug and after examining
the code noticed his bug-fix patch missing.How did the
changes disappear?Does CVS overwrite if we don't run
an update before commit?From what I read in the
manual, CVS asks us to run update in such a case.So
why did this happen?Can some one advice on this?
