I thought this did the trick, but doesn't solve the problem completely. It fires off the 
build, but it to not actually record the revision.

The lack of revision causes an exception when clicking on the submitter in the waterfall 
window. The attached patch prevents the exception. Once I get CVS getting the revisions 
ok, that won't be needed, but it won't hurt either.
