Problems with update -C

We're having some odd problems with 'cvs update -C'; it reports as locally modified (and hence backs up) files that are not modified in the working directory. If I diff the '.#' backup of the file with the version updated from the repository there area no differences. (Additionally, I had done a 'cvs -qn update' in the same working directory just prior to the update that had this error, and no files were reported as being out-of-date.)

It also reports as locally modified files that were updated in a previous commit, even though they were not modified in the working directory either. (They were committed from somewhere else.)

I made a copy of the working directory, but I've been unable to reproduce the problem.

The command being used is

cvs update -C -d -P

We're using a 1.11.19 client and a 1.11.17 server.
