Description Carl Roth 2001-02-13 22:08:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-3smp i686; en-US; 0.7)

CVS update and CVS diff commands fail with an error
  "cannot delete /tmp/cvsXXX"
(where XXX is some tmpnam()-type gibberish).

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.chdir into a checked-out source area
2.modify a file in the area
3.type 'cvs diff [FILE]'

Actual Results:  Diff output is not shown.  The error message is shown instead.

I downgraded my cvs package to the one shipped with RH7.0, and
it works fine now.
