	A checked out tree with local modifications fails to update properly.
Run these commands:
cd /tmp
env CVS_RSH=ssh cvs -d co basesrc/Makefile
cd basesrc
echo apa >> Makefile
env CVS_RSH=ssh cvs update -r 1.90 Makefile

The output from the last will be something like:
RCS file: /cvsroot/basesrc/Makefile,v
retrieving revision 1.98
retrieving revision 1.90
Merging differences between 1.98 and 1.90 into Makefile
cvs server: could not open output file: Permission denied
cvs server: subsidiary diff failed

Adding the cvs flag "-t" to the last command shows that the problem is
on the server side, not on the client side.
