CVS server bug

Dear All,

I am unable to check out gcc from a particular date in the
past. For example, this command into an empty directory:

cvs -z 9 co -D "01/14/2000" gcc

gives the following output:

cvs server: Updating gcc
U gcc/.cvsignore
U gcc/COPYING
U gcc/COPYING.LIB
U gcc/ChangeLog
U gcc/MAINTAINERS
U gcc/Makefile.in
U gcc/README
U gcc/config-ml.in
U gcc/config.guess
U gcc/config.if
U gcc/config.sub
U gcc/configure
U gcc/configure.in
U gcc/install-sh
U gcc/ltconfig
U gcc/ltmain.sh
U gcc/missing
U gcc/mkinstalldirs
U gcc/move-if-change
cvs [server aborted]: unable to reopen `/cvs/gcc/egcs/mpw-README,v'

Apparently, the file "mpw-README" is now in the Attic.

I am using version 1.10.7 of CVS.

Please can you help me. I am trying to rebuild the version of the
compiler that we are currently using and this error is preventing me
from doing so.

Many thanks for your help,

Dr. Andy Foster (Please E-mail: andy.foster@futuretv.com)
