I'm pretty sure I've found a bug with "cvs admin" on a computer running

Please tell me if I found the right place...

In addition to what Mark said, please note that 1.11.5 is a very old
version. Check the NEWS file of the most recent version (1.11.21) to see
if your bug has already been addressed.

Hmm... It took some while to find it but I looked here:

http://cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewcvs/cvs/ccvs/NEWS? rev=

And I don't think the error is listed.... The problem is that if I create a file (which I don't tell CVS about) and accidentally try to "cvs admin" it (to change it from binary -> text file), then I get this:

Terminated with fatal signal 11

And it leaves a some lock-files / lock-directories... I found out because I used tortoiseCVS to add some ".dat" files which in fact were ASCII-files... So I had to do a "cvs admin *.dat" - but then there was a new file which I forgot and which CVS didn't knew anything about...

I really think it's a bug - I mean - there's simply no reason to be so rude and terminate just like that. Instead if it were more polite, it would just have written: "new_file.dat <- unknown file: do a cvs add on it - exiting program and cleaning up lock-files now" or whatever.... And it should definately clean up those lock-files/lock- dir's when it exits so I don't have to write mails to the server- administrators who seem to have lots of other things to do also...

Is this a bug I should report?

BTW: Please respond directly with a CC to me, as I just wanted to be polite and report this bug so it could be fixed if it hasn't already been - and that's all. I guess you probably also have a web-interface (web forum) somewhere but I don't know where it is....
