Using CVS 1.10.6 with cvs pserver 1.10 under Windows, we now have a
file in our CVS archive which when you try to update it from Windows
(but *not* when you update it from Linux), gives this error:

$ cvs update
cvs server: Updating .
cvs [server aborted]: invalid change text in /home/handy/cvs-archive/hcp/src/lin

$ cvs --version

I've had a look at the ,v file in the archive with nvi, and nothing
looks obviously wrong with it.  The error started occurring after doing
a cvs tag.  The file can be updated from Linux; it can be removed and
updated; it was just failing I guess when it tried to patch it?

Line endings are all natural, and the only control characters are LF
and TAB.

Anyway, I thought I should report this / ask about it.

I gather there was a similar error reported in 1.9.20, but was only
supposed to be in that version.
