Is there any other incompatiblities regarding cvs-nt and standard cvs?

I just pulled out all my shell programming skills (which are next to
none) and "invented" the following repository repair script. Did I
forget something?




foreach f (`find . -name "*,v" -type f -print`)
   echo $f
   sed 's/author \@\(.*\)\@;/author \1;/g' $f > temp
   mv temp $f
