        *BZZZT*  Sorry...

        This is the problem.

        Once a project is created, in order to work in the project, one must
first check out the project tree.  (Strictly speaking, this is not
true, but it requires a great deal of skill in CVS to work without the
project tree).  Then, when committing files, CVS has a context to work
from, as saved in the CVS directories in the project tree.

        So if Peggy checks out the project, moves her files into the project
tree, and commits them from there, ahe will have no problem.
