Thanks Max and Larry for your replies.

I am convinced that our server is too old to deal with the -B flag.

Here's the situation I am trying to fix.  I have a testing branch that was
created many changes ago from the dev. branch.  I need to sync them up.  I was
thinking of deleting the test branch and then re-creating it.

Is there a way to do this with a join instead?  Will the join take care of
files that are deleted from the dev. branch but exist in the test branch?
