I would rather let Derek deal with any changes to write_letter(), but I
would guess that what you really want if for error (0, 0, ...) messages
to flush any pending MT or T messages before writing their 'error'
output in client/server mode?

If Derek does fix it, then just using a dotest instead of a dotest_sort
for the resurrection-6 test should be a way to test it.

Actually, that is not an ugly side-effect. You should need to specify
the -r flag on the 'cvs add' command for it to take effect. The 'remove
- -f' has removed the file and that is where the state of any previous
'-r' capabilites lives as to how the file was previously checked out.

Also, if the file is being resurrected from a dead committed version, I
would suggest that it will need to be committed as a change and that
should imply being in write mode as well.

However, your message does point out a bug in 'cvs add' which the
following patch will probably address.
