As you can see from my messages, I don't see any problems there. Everything
seems pretty obvious to me. Am I missing something?

You're right; it's completely useless the way it is because CVS doesn't like
the fact that the source was initially added on a branch. The only way to
recover, AFAIK, is to rebuild the repository history :-(

My sense is that we're hosed and must resort to a local diff3 (or switch to
using Perforce...but I don't want to chance it right now). Emacs can help
with ediff.
