Hmmm... I though I had been very careful to explain that it is a complement
to VC and a replacement only to VC-dired.

I use both all the time.

No.  There's a clear understanding that some kind of merging would be
great, but the two codes are very different and work very differently,
so I don't know of any actual plan to merge them.  They interact well
enough for my purposes right now.

What is this :server: access method ?  I know of :ext:, :pserver:,
:fork:, and :gserver: but hadn't heard of that one yet.

So it seems everything is perfectly right, you've done the right thing
and Emacs seems to think we got the right result as well.

Hmm... That's strange!
Can you shows us the ` *cvs-tmp*' buffer right after the
command terminates (note the leading space in the buffer name) ?

Can you try `cvs -f tag dumbcvs2 .' to make it even more like
what Emacs runs ?
Are you sure bash and Emacs run the same `cvs' executable ?
