I have had the same problem and the same question.  

Numerous times I have had rancid report various problems, and the files are
always showing a "Locally Modified" status.  I have ranted to the others
(only a small handful of admins) about how to use cvs, and everyone claims
that they have always done it the right way.  It remains a mystery to this
day...  (I still think it is human error :-P )
