Thanks for the quick input. I spent a little bit more time and figured out the
corruption problem.

   rlog <fname>.c,v gave me enough clues to figure it out!

thanks again.

Your repository has been corrupted.

Most likely the problem is in one of the change texts; if you're not
intimately familiar with the RCS file format, you're unlikely to be able
to fix it.  I'd suggest looking for uncorrupted backup copies of the
files.  (If you'd like to put the file someplace where I can get to it
or mail it to me, I can give you a more detailed explanation of the
problem, but it probably won't be easy to fix.)
