A slightly revised patch is attached. It is against the
cvs1-11-x-branch. It removes the recursive version of the
code and cleans up the indenting sytle for the code.

I would be interested to learn if this still works with
your reported test case.

Sorry, sample file too large, so attach only chanhed sources

Tue 06 Sep 2005 08:05:27 AM UTC, original submission:

The project I'm developing uses automated source backup into CVS. CVS runs under QNX/Neutrino and communication with it is via CVS protocol. After each change to source file it is automatically commited. Everything works fine until system tries to commit file revision No. 8152, then CVS fails.
I debugged CVS a bit and found that it is because of recursivness of RCS_putdtree function, as stack overflow occures when it goes too deep.

Attached sample file on which CVS failes and changed RCS_putdtree function to correct this. New version is in #else section of RCS_RECURSIVE define.
