Yes, ``cvs diff foo'' report diff between checkout version (aka -rBASE)
and local file.  You can use special tag HEAD that match the most recent
version available in the repository (may not work with branch).

To see differences between last checkout version and most recent
version, use ``cvs diff -rBASE -rHEAD foo''.

Program received signal SIGTERM, Terminated.
0x401ea601 in kill ()
(gdb) where
#0  0x401ea601 in kill ()
#1  0x401b99a4 in jthreadedKill (pid=0, sig=15)

I see, pid is not saved after fork.
Fixed now, thanks.
You can update libraries/clib/native/UNIXProcess.c.

I use gcc-2.95.2 on Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 (slink) and RedHat 5.0 without
problems with Kaffe.
