: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.

    I think that's the only file that require the embedded tag
    to work properly.  It's how it figures out the release string.
