The following sequence:

1. touch file
2. cvs update
3. echo 'new contents' > file
4. cvs commit -m 'new contents'

fails to commit in step 4 if steps 1, 2, and 3 all happen within the same second. The reason is that step 2 notices that file's timestamp has changed even though the contents have not and updates file's timestamp in CVS/Entries. In step 3 the contents change but the timestamp still matches the one-second-granularity timestamp in CVS/Entries. So in step 4 commit does not realize that file has changed.

The attached fix arranges to sleep until the clock has passed the timestamp of the newest entry that was updated.
