port entry error

After cvsupping, I do a portsdb -Uu, but I get warnings about duplicate 
entries, and today, I got a "Not in due form".

What's the cure(s)?

due form: '<version>[_<revision>][,<epoch>]'.

For the "form" problem, isn't the last period supposed to be a comma?
i.e., aureal-kmod-1.3_4.1 should be aureal-kmod-1.3_4,1 ??
