CVS: 'could not rename file xxx/Entries~ xxx/Entries

This is just a heads up for anyone searching the newsgroups for an answer to
this problem...

I kept getting my CVS updates and checkouts interrupted by this message and
tracked the problem down to the Google Desktop search application.

Apparently, that sucker is so fast, it starts indexing the file as soon as
it's changed, which prevents IntelliJ from renaming it.

Thanks for the tip. I'm facing this error for the past month or so.

I'm glad someone found this. It was driving me nuts! Google Desktop lets you ignore files by name, so you can specify \CVS\ to ignore the CVS directories completely.
