This indicates you had a conflict in merging the changes to that file,
most likely stemming from local changes to the file.

The easiest thing would be to do something like this:
   % mv ecos.db ecos.db.BAD
   % cvs up ecos.db
Then manually compare them and figure out how to merge your changes
into the master.
