If you've already updated to the latest revision, how do you expect CVS
to know what merge you want to re-do?  You either have to update to the
old revision, replace it with your new file, and then update to the
latest revision (which will do the merge) or you can use two -j options
on an update to explicitly specify what changes to re-do.
