That's what I get for making one small change without testing it...

I've been able to recreate my problem using CVS 1.10 and 1.11.1, on both AIX and

Here is a test case I wrote to recreate the problem:


rm -rf multmod1 multmod2


#create a repository on Server1
mkdir multmod1
cd multmod1
mkdir dir1
cd dir1
echo file11 >file11
echo file12 >file12
cd ..
cvs -d $Server1 import -m "testmult1" multmod vendor1 release1

#create a repository on Server2
cd $Base
mkdir multmod2
cd multmod2
echo file1 >file1
echo file2 >file2
mkdir dir2
cd dir2
echo file21 >file21
echo file22 >file22
cd ..
cvs -d $Server2 import -m "testmult2" multmod vendor2 release2

# Clean up after ourselves, Mother doesn't work here anymore.
cd $Base
rm -rf multmod1 multmod2

# Now for the real test
rm -rf multmod
cvs -d $Server1 co multmod
cvs -d $Server2 co multmod

cd multmod
cvs -nq up

It sounds like gus/src has a CVS directory with an Entries file that
lists the part1 subdirectory but not the part2 subdirectory.  If so,
just add a line for part2 like the line for part1.
