Karl, this is exactly why I wrote that patch for VC mode. ;)
Unfortunately, the patch is slightly broken. VC mode's use of the -m
option to the CVS binary results in lines starting with the text "CVS: "
to not be stripped out before the commit is performed. Use of CVS from
the command line without the -m option (which spawns an external editor)
does not suffer from this snafu. I haven't yet become an adept enough
elisp hacker to edit the commit message before the commit occurs...
