We once had the minor problem that somehow files showed up twice
(e.g. doing an update). It turned out that the case of the file itself didn't
match the entry in the entries file. So cvs once reported the file from
the entries file and then again while looking for unknown files. It behaved
correctly, it just did the file twice. But that's something the local client
needs to handle (I guess) and not the server. So I don't know if this has
something to do with your actual work, I just thought I'd mention it.

(Actually that was some months ago, I don't know if this is still the case.
Can't test now).
