Crucible tried to anchor your patch, but there was conflicting content

I'm trying to use Crucible with CVS for precommit review. When I upload the patch, it says

Crucible tried to anchor your patch, but there was conflicting content 

All my files have keyword tag $Log: NameOfTheFile.java,v $ and this seems to be the culprit. If I remove the tag and commit, the problem goes away -- I can upload precommit patches to Crucible. However I do not want to remove all the keyword tags from my files.

Is there any other work-around? One page says I can manually edit the diff. How??

Note, I found another work-around. I can create the patch with "cvs diff -u10000 [files] >patch" and that will upload the entire source file instead of just 3 lines context. The anchor still fails, but at least I can view the entire file. However, I would still like to know how to "edit the diff" to avoid the anchor failure.
