Well, it was. What you've faced (when you've paid close attention :-) was
that "cvs update" printed a "C" at the start of the line (where it
otherwise prints "P" etc.). This is a "C"onflict, indicating that someone
made a change to the same textual region as you've made a change, and that
some manual resolving is needed. The both areas of changes are indicated
by the <<<<< and >>>>> (and seperated by ====) lines.

If that happens, you should have a look at what changes conflicted, and
resovle it.
