It could very well be an artifact of my turning off write access.
I'm just guess, but maybe you need write access if you have a
writable checkout and try to do a diff (because CVS wants to create a
lock in the repository in that case). You could try enabling your
write access to do the diff and see if that helps.
There's only a handful of us that have developer privs on the
project, so I'm not /too/ concerned about accidental CVS commits. I
just did it so an accidental commit would let you know to switch to
svn, but I guess it messes up this case too.
Yep r425 was the switch point.
