Thanks, J.W. Removing the -C worked. But it also showed that the -C
didn't do what I thought it did. The man page says:
-C, --cvs-exclude auto ignore files in the same way
For some reason I read this to mean that it was excluding the cvs-specific
files in the 'CVS' directories that cvs puts everywhere it is used.
Exactly what is it really excluding?
