Is this remote cvs? I've seen this sometimes, when the modification
time of the file has changed, but the content hasn't. I guess cvs
doesn't check the content over remote cvs to save time ... or something.
Running a 'cvs upd' has always made cvs get back in sync for me.
If it's not remote cvs, then I have no idea.
