That's a good stop-gap solution, but to permanently fix it you need to
checkout CVSROOT/rcsinfo (it's managed by CVS), remove or correct the
offending line, and commit it.  If you don't do that, the next time
someone commits any of the administrative files or runs init the file
will come back with the bad line in it.

Good point. I hadn't even realized that $CVSROOT/CVSROOT was cvs managed... makes sense though... brain fart on my part.
