I am under the impression that sanity.sh sets $HOME to a value
other than the default ~/ directory (HOME=$TESTDIR/home). So, I
am curious how this is getting in the way of sanity.sh testing.
Adding a 'printenv' to the rdiff-8 test may be desirable.

You might try running with a checkout of to see if it
fixes your problem too.

sanity.sh does not invoke cvs with the -f option; therefore
the users ~/.cvsrc file is read.  This can cause spurious

For example, mine contains, amongst other things,

    import -ko

Which causes test rdiff-8 to fail.

If you don't want to invoke cvs with -f, then perhaps just a check
early in sanity.sh for the existence of ~/.cvsrc.  And if it exists
tell the user that sanity.sh depends upon the absence of the file,
so please move it aside and run sanity.sh again.
