Hello Mark,

Thank you for the command! It looks like that we have run into the older cvs 
bug. The output from 'cvs log' puts the file's location in the Attic, and the 
state of the most recent version is "state: Exp;". We're still working on 
getting access to the repository, so we aren't able to make the change 
ourselves quite yet. Just to make sure I understand what needs to happen, all 
we have to do is move the ,v files of the problem files from the Attic 
subdirectory up one directory, and all should be ok? After that, run an update 
to get the workspace all squared away?

Thank you all again for the help!
