Buggers I was trying to do a diff to see what changed instead of doing an 
update since you know how sometimes when you do the update you get the .# 
Files with the copy of you source before the update and then you can 
compare these to see if anything needs cleaning up.  I was trying to do a 
diff just to see what had changed without having to deal with the .# 

I'll just start doing the update then diff from now on although I might 
try the -rHEAD option to see what that does. 

Thanks for the explanation.
