If you edit your 'src/CVS/Entries' so that it contains:


(but not the capitalized version), delete the 'src/Persistence' directory, 
and then 'cvs upd -dP', you should get a correct checkout.

Unfortunately, there isn't anything I can do about this in the CVS 
repository, without losing the ability to go back to older versions of PEAK.

But maybe I should reconsider this, since this would only be for versions 
prior to 0.5a1, and so much has changed since then that prior versions are 
of only historical interest.
