Mat just alerted me to this screwed-up file in the Python CVS.  Doing a "cvs 
log" on Doc/lib/libposixpath.tex shows an error in the repository:

cvs [log aborted]: unexpected '\x0' reading revision number in RCS file 

The most recent version of the file I can find on my disks (that isn't 
corrupt) is dated 16 April 2004.  I've started looking through the snapshots 
at http://cvs.perl.org/snapshots/python/python/ for a more recent good copy, 
but I'd really like a good copy of the ,v from the repository itself.

Does anyone have a recent copy of that?
