Looks like the problem stems from the use of a right/... timezone
instead of a posix/... timezone.  The UTC-vs-posix difference skewed
the seconds of the timestamp in Entries.

In short, cvs's idea of GMT when using a right/... timezone is wrong.
It only changes the hours, not also the seconds.

I'll look at it some more and submit a patch.

It there an easy way to fix the Entries files, to have them match the
files' timestamps?
