We use a cvs pserver for a project.
I have a project with two directories containing multiple files.
Changes are made in both directories.

When doing a cvs diff dir1 dir2   everything is OK. I see all the changes
I've made.

When doing a cvs diff dir1/ dir2  only partial changes are seen.
The same holds for cvs diff dir1 dir2/

By changingd the CVSROOT to the repository directly instead of using a
pserver all goes ok.

I've downloaded cvs-1.11.21 and patched client.c. This strips the trailing
backslashes when sending filesnames in (in case of a directory) to the
I don't know if this is correct and complete solution but it seems to work

Patched version of client.c that strips trailing slashes before sending it to
the server
