cvs 1.11p1

I'm not sure exactly how this state came to be, but it sure is annoying.

The repository is accessed by both Windows and Linux boxes. So, we have a policy that all file names be lower case only. This avoids problems with ambiguity in windows land.

So someone checked in a file "Installer.h", cvs remove'd it then attempted to add and commit "installer.h" which resulted in an assert failure at hash.c:312.

This is because the file did not exist but somehow it was assumed to exist - very strange.

So, now when I try to commit installer.h into this directory from anywhere it fails this assert().

This is a major bug.

Anyhow, I detected a corrupted installer.h,v in the repository. Removing this seems to fix everything.
