So \*that's\* what's going on

For a while now I've been irritated with the behaviour of OpenRCS and Emacs on my OpenBSD machines: every time I try to check out a file kept in RCS, using C-x v v (vc-next-action), I still have to toggle read-only status on the file. Then, when I try to check it in, it asks if I want to steal the lock from myself, and never actually checks it in.

Finally had some time to track this down, and this bug appears to be the cause. I may have to play around with Emacs a bit to get it to ignore the permissions, or I may just use the OpenBSD package for GNU rcs instead.
