Please try
  # fsvs commit -d -m "2007-06-26-cmpatch upgrade"
and look at the end of the output. Maybe there's some UTF8-conversion
problem ...

The message itself says that fsvs wanted to open a directory in the
repository that doesn't exist. So it might be necessary to do a "fsvs
sync-repos" ...

Do you have many changes locally? If not, doing the sync-repos and looking
at the status output might be interesting - some path should be shown as
deleted (and possibly added with another name).


Regards,

Phil
