[M3devel] I need more cvs help

I am trying to move some small subdirectories.  In my local copy, I created the new
directories, did cvs add on them, copied the source files to the new directories,
did cvs add and cvs commit on them, in the new directories.  On this machine, it
looks like it worked, and CVS/Entries shows the new version numbers the commit showed.
But doing cvs update -d on a different machine gets nothing.

Moreover, the commit messages coming through on m3commit show the files as
committed in the directory where the old copies were.  CVS/Entries there also
shows the new version numbers.  And cvs update in the old directory not only gets
the new versions, that were committed from the new directory, but it gets some
other files that came from a different subdirectory too.

Surely, cvs can't be treating files in different directories with the same simple
name as the same file.  We have tens, maybe hundreds of files named "m3makefile"
all over, and these don't get mixed up in this way.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
