Skip the below patch. Pete Stieber suggested I check my mounts that they
are text mode. Sure enough, the mount point for the filesystem containing
my local CVS directory was in bin mode. After mounting in text mode, all
works fine. (mount -t E: /e for example).
Might be useful to have this in the CVS FAQ if there is one.
