Sorry for the long delay...

RCS 5.8 and later do not recognize that file as a valid comma-v file; the grammar was "frozen" and the only grandfathered extra field was "commitid". It looks like that file has in addition "deltatype", "permissions", "kopt" and "filename", which suggests it was created with some other program (CVS?).

I'm changing the status to Invalid and will wait a while before closing, if you have further remarks to add.

I am getting an odd error from rlog:

tgoodman@bakedpotatoe //notsure/cvs/MHPro
$ rlog Makefile,v

rlog: Makefile,v:439: missing `desc' keyword
rlog aborted

tgoodman@bakedpotatoe //notsure/cvs/MHPro
$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 bakedpotatoe 1.7.9(0.237/5/3) 2011-03-29 10:10 i686 Cygwin

cygwin seems to be using rcs version 5.8-1
This error does occur when using rcs version 5.7-25 under ubuntu.
This error does not occur when using rcs version 5.7-11 under cygwin.
