RE: hash.c:312 - abort on commit

We have a setup (Windows, *nix clients to the same repository) similar to what Gianni describes below.  Our windows clients use winCVS.  When a file (say Install.c) is removed and subsequently added back as say install.c, the Install.c,v remains in the Attic while there is a corrupted install.c,v in the  respository directory which cause the assert failure which in turn fails the commit.  To recover from this we have to do repository surgery - remove the corrupted file, rename the Attic file to say install.c,v and then re-commit - not nice.

This error does not occur when using say *nix clients because of case sensitivity reasons.

The question is where do I file this bug ?

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.
