Read the mail from Larry. Another problem you might suffer from happens if 
you use the the CVS-keyword $Name: $ in your source files. 
I found yesterday that my error
is much worse than I thought - since I found that a sticky tagged file 
which uses $Name: $ is NOT updated, when you run "cvs update -A".
That caused lots of pain until I found it - 4000 files. Two files not 
updated :(

So I look so much forward to the next official release!!!!
