Ahhh. The file I have from an anoncvs has the line

tag="\$Name:  $"

probably because of the 'co -ko' line in my .cvsrc file. Removing that
option and updating the file seems to have fixed this problem. Are
there other places I'm going to get bit by this? Is it better to not
use the -ko option at all? Thanks again.
