In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i386-msvc-windows98.2222)
 of 2001-10-29 on SWC-MAN-L004
configured using `configure --with-msvc (12.00)'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: eng
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

The documentation for this variable says 
  "*A string or list of strings specifying extra switches for checkin.
These are passed to the checkin program by \\[vc-checkin]."

This was never 'really' true in 20.* - vc-backend-checkin did it,
 but in 21.1 it's the responsibility of the backend to make sure this happens.

I suggest that the comments at the start of vc.el which refer to
writing backends should make this clear - and also add a similar comment about
vc-checkout-switches, vc-register-switches,...(?)

Currently the only mention of vc-checkin-switches in vc.el is in a comment
(apart from its declaration)
      ;; Change buffers to get local value of vc-checkin-switches.

Robert
