Glad to know that. I didn't think it was a warning. Perhaps it
wasn't in an earlier version of CVS.

find . -name Root -print0 | xargs -0 rm
That should do the trick :-)
Or I suppose you could use a sed/perl/awk script that updates the file.
Shouldn't be too hard to write. But why bother? I often update from
different servers. The clean and easy way to do that is to use
the -d option to cvs. My "update" script looks something like
cvs -q -d $srchost up -PAd
Guess which host I updated from last :-)
If you always use the same host make it a shell alias instead of a script.
