I have two versions of the CVS client installed on a WinNT box here:

1) cvs.exe that comes with WinCVS 1.3 (cvs.exe version is
2) cvs.exe that comes with Cygwin (cvs.exe version is 1.11)

Now, when I check out a project from our repository (which is a Linux
box running Debian) using the Cygwin cvs.exe and then do a "cvs up"
using the WinCVS cvs.exe a lot of files are marked "Locally modified"
although I haven't touched them.

When I do a diff on the files marked as modified I don't see any.
I configured WinCVS to check out text files with Unix EOLs so that
doesn't seem to be the problem.

Does someone have an idea what might be causing these phantom
