Note that a difference is a difference; the fact that it's in the
revision string doesn't really matter.

What this is telling you is that there is a more recent revision of that
file in the repository.  If you were to check in your current copy of
the file, you would lose the changes from the more recent revision(s) in
the repository, so CVS won't allow it.  You need to use ``cvs update''
(perhaps with the -A option) to update your working copy to the most
recent revision in the repository before CVS will allow you to check it
