The "RCS keyword extraction" test fails when the tests
are checked out with the -kk option. This option is
almost necessary for people who work with branches a
lot and may be in a ~/.cvsrc file.
When the -kk option is in effect, CVS cruft like $Date$
isn't expanded the same way: $Date$ simply remains
$Date$, not $Date: ....$; other replacement keywords
behave in the same way.
The test works fine when checked out without the -kk
option, so it's not completely broken. I'm not sure
what the right approach is, but probably defining the
input data such that CVS doesn't actually munge it is
desirable (so that the input data isn't present as a
simple literal in the source code).
