commit doesn't perform keyword substitution

The documentation mentions that 'cvs commit ...' automatically
substitutes keywords (on files without any sticky -k option). But when I
do the following on a file 'toto.c' that contains /* $Id$ */:

        * cvs add toto.c
        * cvs commit -m "..." toto.c

the file toto.c,v still contains $Id$. The keyword only gets substituted
during a checkout, export or update which seems a non-sense to me. I
really need to know who did a commit rather that who did the export or

CVS release: cvs 1.11.1p1-3 from the Debian woody GNU/Linux

Did I miss something?
