Gosh, I wish I were a CVS expert. I know I've seen this, I just can't recall
how/when. Does CVS use ~/.cvspass for updates, or what is stored in the
./CVS directories?

I see it is a status check (the -n for no work) looking for differences
(updates) between local and remote. As such, something exists in your
workspace CVS directory making Gump think it ought simply do an update.

Could it be that somehow the original checkout failed, and there is an empty
directory left around. Or, could you have checked out the code using some
other configuration?

Anybody else able to help here? I'm used to Nick coming to my rescue w/ CVS,
but he's otherwise busy right now...
