cvs pserver 1.11.1p1 on solaris 2.6

When someone tryed 1) above, during cvs add they will get:

Assertion failed: *rcsnode == NULL, file commit.c, line 2044
cvs [server aborted]: received abort signal

and a corrupt ,v file is placed in the repository. I have to write a trigger to
prevent adds for case changes. Case changes work fine from a UNIX cvs client
(as long as you don't use that file on windows).

cvs 1.11 on solaris 2.7 handles this more gracefully, by telling you the file
already exists?
