Sounds like a bug (or lack of feature ;-) in PCL-CVS.  I'll see if I
can fix it.  Thanks for mentioning it.

I'd recommend you try to setup your ChangeLog files such that
it happens very rarely that a single commit spans changes recorded
in several ChanegLog files.  This way you won't suffer from the above

PCL-CVS doesn't know anything about RCS, so it won't mind but it won't
do anything useful with it.  I used such a setup in the past and actually
liked it: instead of switching backend in VC with `C-x v b', I just let
VC do all the RCS commands and used PCL-CVS to do the CVS stuff.
