Description Need Real Name 2000-10-03 00:48:16 UTC
In CVS client version 1.10.7:

You will not receive an error message stating that "notafile" doesn't
exist, if you run:
cvs diff -r 1.1 -r 1.2 notafile

If you run the following commands, you will correctly receive an error:
cvs diff -r 1.1 notafile
cvs diff -r notafile

Still present in 1.10.8.  Will need to investigate.
