sticky tags!

Hello Everyone,

... Yes, I searched the archives!

Here's my situation:

1) I have cvs repository for a project, and I inadvertently included a bunch of .mod files in it (the source code is in fortran-90 and .mod files are generated at compile-time from source code, so I don't really need them in the repository). I frequently access the repository remotely, and updating the .mod files takes some time.

2) I tried to use the command

cvs remove -f *.mod

to remove the .mod files from my project.

3) Next, I tried to commit my changes with

cvs commit

and received the message:

cvs commit: cannot commit with sticky date for file `barotropic.mod'
cvs [commit aborted]: correct above errors first!

4) Then, a status check shows:
 cvs status barotropic.mod
File: no file barotropic.mod            Status: Locally Removed

   Working revision:    -1.16   Thu Oct 28 19:52:45 2004
Repository revision: 1.16 /Users/ezaron/CVSrepository/X/src/barotropic.mod,v
   Sticky Tag:          (none)
   Sticky Date:         2004.
   Sticky Options:      (none)

5) Then, following the advice in the cvs documentation, I attempt to reset the sticky flags:
cvs update -A barotropic.mod
R barotropic.mod

6) Now a cvs status shows the same status for barotropic.mod, and the cvs commit still doesn't go through.

Any help would sure be appreciated.
