One thing to keep in mind with cvs is: If you put garbage into a file, 
then cvs will not correct it, it will rather go to some lengths merging 
your garbage into all new versions of the file, unlesss you erase it and 
get a fresh copy.

I am mentioning this, because your real error message certainly is not 
what you are showing here ("founde"? There are at least two lines 
superposed). If it really looks on screen like the above, then  perhaps 
editing files with an editor that uses the same screen output routines 
can corrupt your source files.

Did you ever run "cvs diff admin/cvs.sh" or look if there are any 
suspicious characters on lines 8 and 9 of that file?
