This problem was occuring yesterday. I don't want to test it right now because I don't want to mess up my tree. However, if nothing has changed, it probably still exists... Yesterday evening, a cvs checkout or update from cvs-mirror.mozilla.org didn't merge changes into a modified file. It instead quit with the following error: david@dbaron ~/mozilla/src/mozilla/tools/jprof > cvs update libmalloc.cpp RCS file: /cvsroot/mozilla/tools/jprof/libmalloc.cpp,v retrieving revision 1.1 retrieving revision 1.3 Merging differences between 1.1 and 1.3 into libmalloc.cpp cvs server: could not open output file: No such file or directory cvs server: subsidiary diff failed david@dbaron ~/mozilla/src/mozilla/tools/jprof > cvs.mozilla.org works fine on the same file. The last two lines from above are replaced by the one line: M libmalloc.cpp This was on the HEAD and it occured both in SeaMonkeyAll and in tools/jprof.
This looks similar to what imoT reported in irc. There was a missing directory in chroot environment (/var/tmp, /tmp/ wasn't enough). So I believe this is fixed now. Please reopen the ticket if this is not the case.
