Move away errors - commonly occur under windows file systems because many
editors lose the case of the file.  A file which is all upper case or all
lower case appears to be lower case, but in actuality is upper cased.  A
file with mixed case will appear correctly.  I have run into this MANY times
after editing with lame editors that saved files as all upper case.  I use
FAR by ( and it displays the actual case of files... not
sure how to do this otherwise... but you can try just doing a 'rename' which will fix the case ( unless it was actually in
upper case when you checked it in - have to check CVS/Entries to see what it
actually wants ) So - although windows uses long file names and allows
cases - for backwards compatibility it assumes all upper case is lower case,
and forgets to tell anyone - but apparently the test within CVS even on
windows is case sensitive.
