That version is ancient -- the current stable release is 1.11.20!  I
strongly suggest upgrading both the client(s) and the server (although
the server is most important): <http://www.cvshome.org/>.  That may well
fix the problem.

The usual reason is that something has changed the file without changing
the timestamp.

Such disclaimers on messages sent to public mailing lists are silly at
best.  Please give your lawyers a cookie and put them in a nice padded
room where they won't hurt themselves or annoy others.
