Ok, I'm finally getting things finalized with my setup, and I've noticed something rather wierd going on with the diff command.

Namely I have code checked in on a branch, call it Branch1 which after I created the branch I removed a couple of files from that Branch.

I then checked out the code for that branch into a clean directory and changed to that directory.

This is where things start getting wierd.

%cvs diff
returns as expected:

cvs server: Diffing .


%cvs diff -r Branch1
returns the following:

cvs server: Diffing .
cvs server: cfggen_fdcb.C.clh.C++Style no longer exists, no comparison available cvs server: ctllogd_fdcb.C.has_execvp no longer exists, no comparison available

Those are the 2 files that were removed.

Why is this happening? Is there any way to make them behave the same way?
