It isn't.

An example:

On 2001/04/29, I replaced d.rgb with a version which used RGB raster
operations (D_draw_raster_RGB), comprising:


These files are still there, and src/display/d.rgb/CVS/Tag contains:


However, the most recent update adds the old version of d.rgb in
src/display/d.rgb/cmd, with src/display/d.rgb/cmd/CVS/Tag containing:


Note: "T" indicates a branch tag, "N" indicates a non-branch tag.

AFAICT, any other files which had been removed from the release branch
have re-appeared in the latest version.

I haven't seen any cases where existing files have been replaced by
the wrong version, but the presence of additional files could still
interfere with the build process, e.g. adding subdirectories to any
directory whose Gmakefile uses $(MAKEALL), or adding header files
which conflict with header files occurring later in the include path.

As I mentioned earlier, use of -D allowed me to get a pre-snafu
version of the source tree, but there isn't much point in committing
anything while the problem remains.
