That's the way RCS works -- the $Log$ keyword (not command) is expanded
by checkout/update, so what's actually in the file for 1.33 is the log
for 1.32.  That is, the log for 1.32 gets added to the file when you
check it out, it isn't added to the RCS file in the repository until you
check it in again as 1.33, so the log for 1.32 is actually added in

bad that it can't get worse. -- Calvin
