Hmmm.  It didn't used to do that.  I use sup to just get the changed files
and them import them into my own local CVS tree (so I can keep things like
your ATAPI patches <grin>).  If it gets all files that aren't on the disk,
the man page needs to be updated.  I'll go snooping through the source
when I get home.
