I do have TEST_BRANCH, but still can not figure out why cvs server cannot modify RCS file.
See my command history below.

That message is somewhat misleading -- it would be more accurate to say
that CVS *did not* modify the RCS file rather than that it could not.
Since the requested branch did not exist, there was nothing to lock and
hence no reason to change the RCS file.
