I ran across an interesting problem yesterday, I was wondering if this is a
known bug, or just a 'wierdness'.  The problem occurs when adding a file in
a module that has a removed file (in the 'attic') where the two file names
differ only in case.  For example:  adding 'Afile.test'  after removing

$ cvs remove afile.txt
cvs server: use 'cvs commit' to remove this file permanently
$ cvs commit -m test afile.txt
Removing afile.txt;
/cvshome/test/afile.txt,v <-- afile.txt
new revision: delete; previous revision:
$ cvs add Afile.txt
cvs server: re-adding file Afile.txt
cvs server: use 'cvs commit' to add this file permanently
$ cvs commit -m test Afile.txt
RCS file: /cvshome/test/Afile.txt,v
cvs [server aborted]: received abort signal
cvs: commit.c:2056: checkaddfile: Assertion `*rcsnode == ((void *)0)'

The workaround that was the most effective was to rename the file in the
attic on the server.
