Ahh! I thought I was going crazy when I ran into this yesterday..

The other big problem of course is that if a file is set to 'o'
expansion mode (preserve keywords, eg: cvs admin -ko or cvs import
-ko), then 'cvs update -A' always repeats the checkout, over and over

I went through the repository and removed the 'expand @o@' modes that
had been bogusly set in the past as a mitigation, but it still needs
to be fixed.

cvs add: scheduling file `foo.txt' for addition
cvs add: use 'cvs commit' to add this file permanently
peter at overcee[11:39am]/tmp/cvs/co/dir-120> cvs commit -m 'add with -ko'
cvs commit: Examining .
RCS file: /tmp/cvs/repo/dir/foo.txt,v
Checking in foo.txt;
/tmp/cvs/repo/dir/foo.txt,v  <--  foo.txt
initial revision: 1.1

U foo.txt

This is a pretty drastic regression.
