That message indicates that CVS thinks the sandbox file didn't come from
the repository file but from somewhere else.  Check CVS/Entries (and
CVS/Entries.Log if it exists) paying careful attention to case
differences or invisible control characters that may be confusing CVS. 
If you're using client/server CVS, having one (either the client or the
server) that's case sensitive and one that's case insensitive can also
lead to these kinds of problems.
