argh! the one on the branch was build.bat and the other on the mainline was

i mean, it's crazy trying to have files differentiated only by case in a
repo, but it would really help if there was a message telling me I was about
to do something stupid. I got this:

RCS file: /public/Development/CVS/rotorgene/main/Attic/build.bat,v
cvs [server aborted]: received abort signal
cvs: commit.c:2044: checkaddfile: Assertion `*rcsnode == ((void *)0)'
cvs commit: saving log message in C:\DOCUME~1\matthew\LOCALS~1\Temp\20

and now I actually remember getting this problem before, not that the error
message jogged my memory :(

Subject: can't add file to branch, not permissions problem

hi all,

i'm getting an error trying to commit a new file on a branch. i'm using
1.11.p1 with client/server (win2k client, redhat linux server).

checked out a fresh copy of the data:

>cvs add build.bat
cvs server: use 'cvs commit' to add this file permanently

>cvs commit
cvs server: cannot lock
cvs commit: saving log message in C:\DOCUME~1\matthew\LOCALS~1\Temp\17

now i checked the directory and there are no lock files, and I can touch a
new file in the repo's dir, so i can't see the permissions being an issue.

any ideas?

also, is the newly released version 1.12 what _was_ the dev version about 2
months ago, or have they made a new minimal patch? On the website it only
shows 4 things or so that have changed, or is that just a summary? (ie does
it have the fixed log "::" command and the fixed rlog over branches?)
