You may want to read TESTS if you haven't already.

Looking at the test, that implies that CVS didn't realize that the file
had changed and thus didn't do anything.  You'll need to figure out why
that is.  Does QNX's filesystem have a 1 second granularity on file
timestamps like Unix or a 2 second granularity like DOS?  If the latter,
then that is almost certainly the problem -- CVS assumes that a file
cannot change without it's timestamp changing and assumes a one second
delay is sufficient to ensure that.  To work around the problem, you can
add "sleep 1" commands to sanity.sh as required.
