It sounds to me like you have 1 person who has removed the
file, and a second person had done an update in a separate
directory, but it can't delete the file because it appears to have
been modified.

Or maybe it hasn't been modified, it's just a case of being a
binary file, the diff produces different output which confuses

I've seen something similar with binary file comparison.  I
think it is just doing a cvs update -j -j with binary files, I get
messages saying "can't read header from /tmp/cvsxxxx", making
it look like disk is full or something, but in actual fact, what it
is saying is "binary files differ" or something like that, which
is not the normal diff header, and CVS can't cope.

BFN.  Paul.
