Description Bertil Askelid 2001-05-16 20:54:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
"cvs edit" complains about invalid character in current directory:

cvs [edit aborted]: current directory
(/home/local/Zeta-Soft/CVS/Working/bertil/iC++/c++/test-programs/vdg-tests)
contains an invalid character (+,>;=\t\n)

It didn't say anything about this in older releases. However, if I submit
the command in ~ and instead have the absolute file name in the command
argument, it does not complain:

cvs edit
/home/local/Zeta-Soft/CVS/Working/bertil/iC++/c++/test-programs/vdg-tests/file.c
