strange error -- touch: cannot change times...

Hello -

I have a question about a strange error message while removing a file.
The message came up after CVS was 'done' removing the file -- 

"touch: cannot change times on ..."

However, this message does not appear to have any funtional effect as the
file did get removed from the tree successfully.  Can someone provide some
insight on this?  Log below...


> rm deleteme 
> cvs remove deleteme
