Hi all, perhaps someone can shed some
light on this...

I'm seeing some strange behaviour while trying to
commit some changes for my contrib modules.

In my working directory (bookimport) I can
commit files with no problem, but when I
go to commit a file in a subdirectory
bookimport/contrib I get an error:

   [djun bookimport]$ cvs commit contrib/explode2dir.php
   cvs [server aborted]: "commit" requires write access to the  

The directory and files in question exist in their
expected places in the CVS repository...

When I do a 'cvs diff' I get an even stranger situation

   [djun bookimport]$ cvs diff contrib/explode2dir.php
   cvs [diff aborted]: no such directory `contrib'
   Index: contrib/explode2dir.php

but then CVS finds the remote file anyway and
does the diff.  I'm missing something...
