Yes, I'll fix the locale settings. Thanks for the fix.

I'm never sure I'm doing anything correctly ;)

I used both:

# fsvs ignore "./roots/*/var/log/*"
# fsvs ignore ./roots/2/var/log/*

...and my dump looks like:

# fsvs ignore dump
...
./roots/2/var/log/messages
...
./roots/*/var/log/*

...and my commit looks like:

# fsvs commit -m "test"
...
.mC. 13786 ./roots/2/var/log/messages
...

Note that I never did an "fsvs init"... the README " How is it used?"
section didn't contain one... I didn't see the "init" command until I
read the "USAGE".

Thanks,

Chris
P.S. thanks for the explanation of the diff issue. I just won't worry
about the error output.
P.P.S. Lines wrapped by Outlook. Oulook su***.
