Looking closer the situation is more complicated.  The file was added to
the trunk on 2007-06-15, but the EMACS_22_BASE branch was cut on
2007-04-27.  There is no indication in the RCS file how the file was
added to the EMACS_22_BASE branch (unlike the emacs-unicode-2,
multi-tty, unicode-xft and lexbind branches, which have explicit
revisions for the merges).  It looks like the history of the file has
been modified after the fact, and neither cvsps nor git-cvsimport can be
blamed here.
