Hi David,

Actually, you can determine where it is in the repository using the
CVS command:

  cvs log filename

The 'RCS File' will include the '/Attic/' component if the filename is
indeed in the Attic. Then looking to see the 'state: ' of the 'head:'
revision should tell you if it is right or not.

For exaqmple, if 'head: 1.33' is found and the data looks something like this:

RCS file: /path/to/file/Attic/name.c
head: 1.33
revision 1.33
date: yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss +0000; author: xx; state: dead; lines +0 -0;

then there is nothing wrong. However, if the state is something else
like 'state: Exp;' then you have run into the older 'cvs' bug.

        Good luck,
        -- Mark
