The head revision cache is only in the Cygnus version of CVS.  It is
not in the CVS releases distributed by Cyclic.

I have not submitted the patches into Cyclic precisely because of
problems like these.  We avoid them at Cygnus by draconian control
over the CVS repository, but they can cause problems for other people.
My plan is to eventually submit them into Cyclic controlled by a
parameter in the relatively new config file.

I recommend that the FSF use the CVS 1.9.26 release from Cyclic.  It
should not have the problem described above.
