    Based on the ticket and the patch, I think this is the right
procedure for verifying the patch. Please verify that the case below
repros the issue seen by the end-user before applying the patch though

supdir=$(mktemp -d /tmp/sup.XXXXXX)
# Supfile follows. Change cvsup host as necessary..
cat >$supdir/supfile <<EOF
*default base=$supdir
*default prefix=$supdir/checkout
*default release=cvs
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress
# Get the sources
csup $supdir/supfile
# Empty out the files
for i in $(find $supdir/supfile/sys -name '*.[ch]'); do
    : > $i
# This should fail, requiring multiple tries.
csup $supdir/supfile
# Clean up
rm -Rf $supdir
