I have some more clues now; some of the time stamps in the CVS repo are messed up; eg revision 1.2 of flower/include/GNUmakefile lists 2002 as the year which is clearly wrong.

Most definitely this would trigger a "bug" in cvsps. I say "bug", because really, there are no changesets in CVS, and cvsps just tries to guess which revisions belong together by looking at the timestamp and the commit message.

That date is definitely wrong (since the next file revision, 1.3 is in the year 1998 again). It is not only misleading cvsps, but it actually makes the repository less useful. I wonder how you can make that happen, though. It is not like I can edit the date of a file revision with CVS (unless I edit the ,v file).

We started using CVS with version 1.5.24, end of 2001. The earlier history has been recreated artificially by importing tarballs with a script. Something went wrong during this process, apparently.
