My guess is when you scp the checkout module to research box, it does 
not copy the hidden CVS folders. and coincidently on the research box, 
it already got the old hidden CVS folders, which CVS/Entries specify 
version 1.5 for that file, and that version file is not available in the 
repository (happens if you re-checked-in/move cvs repository).
