The following diff on cvs1-11-5 rectifies the problem for
at least one variation of the diff command.
If you go cvs diff -r xxx file.c
then it will be quiet if there are no real changes. But still produce
diffs if there are real changes.
This doesn't fix the problem for cvs diff -r xxx -r yyy file.c though.
And I didn't try it with plain "cvs diff file.c".
Any ideas on where to fix it for the -r xxx -r yyy variation?
