I think the problem is that the -k options are "sticky", so that a
simple update doesn't reset to the repository (cvs can't tell that the
-kb came from the repository, vs. a 'cvs co -kb' command.) You could
also probably do 'cvs update -A' to clear the stickiness, although that
would also undo any other sticky properties, e.g. tags.
