Is this the exact command that you typed in, cut-and-pasted
from your telnet/whatever session?  It works fine on my

it contain any characters the shell or CVS might find
significant (other than newlines, of course)?

This means that CVS thought you were processing more than
one file, whereas the command above clearly indicates that
you are working on one file.  Either the command you gave is
not exactly as you typed it, or there's something about
try.txt that isn't working.  Here's the one I used:
