In my scenario, RCS isn't a directory, but an actual file.

ident warning: no id keywords in rcs
<hangs... As if it's looking for further input>
I wouldn't think that ident would care since windows (dos shell) is case
insensitive anyway. I'm thinking there is some case-sensitive checking going
on in Ident somewhere that is causing this.

As an addendum: on GNU/unix machines I observed this behavior:
$ ident RCS
ident warning: no id keywords in RCS
$ ident rcs
ident error: rcs: No such file or directory
this is obviously a result of directories reading just like files on
GNU/unix but not on Windows.
perhaps the windows(tm) source of RCS should check if the filename is a
directory. this functionality is not crucial as there is no directory
recursion behavior anyway. /a
