cvs up -C: "cannot open <file> for copying" if file conlicts

If I would like to overwrite a file with the latest version from cvs (by
using the option "-C") and the current locally modified file is in conflict
with that version, cvs issues an error message like the one below.

Is there any way to make this option work in this case? (Of course you can
get around it by removing and updating the file, but once this option is
there, it would be great to see it actually working correctly...) With
non-conflicting files it works fine, i.e. it makes the
.#<filename>.<version> copy and overwrites the local file.

~/> cvs up -C x/y/
(Locally modified moved to
cvs [server aborted]: cannot open for copying: No such file or

P.S.: I'm not sure, but it seems that sometimes the same happens to
non-conflicting locally modified files as well.

Thanks in advance,
