I run do-diffs once a day and I modify router.db whenever a new device is added to the network.  I have never had the need to run cvs commit router.db.

i guess i'm interested in how it got to this state.  only way
it should be possible is if the file were modified between runs.

that is, given folks' confusion with cvs, i'd prefer that rancid
take of it and it should have.  so, if i've buggered it, i would
like to know what happened so i can fix it.
