Oh, I've been hanging out in some pretty bad neighborhoods^H^H^H CVS
repositories lately :-).

Although it is true that this "isn't supposed to happen", the fact is
in the wild one can find CVS repositories that have the same symbolic
name, in the same RCS file, mapping to more than revision or branch
number (and sometimes to *both* regular revisions and branches).
Therefore cvs2svn checks for this.
