Thanks for your contribution, Nathan!
I can access the URL below and will look into this when I get a chance.

Nathan> I trace'd all the functions in vc.el and vc-hooks.el for the problem
Nathan> description and placed an HTMLized version on the web:
Nathan> replete with headings that hopefully describe the problem. Function
Nathan> calls, returns, and the values returned are color-coded. The file is
Nathan> about 60K, so you might have to wait for it (school's connection is
Nathan> kinda slow).
Nathan> The main problem, as I can see, is that in the second `C-x v v',
Nathan> vc-file-getprop continually returns nil; it's as though pertinent
Nathan> information wasn't saved during vc-register or something similar. The
Nathan> third time through, vc-file-getprop returns the correct information.
Nathan> I'm not sure why initially registering the file doesn't set the
Nathan> information; it appears to get set during the second `C-x v v' in the
Nathan> call to vc-backend (call depth 10). But it's too late; we're
Nathan> trying to check the file out.
Nathan> In the second call to `C-x v v', the function vc-file-clearprops is
Nathan> called (from vc-backend-admin, call depth 8 and 7, respectively); that
Nathan> looks suspicious, too.
Nathan> The above comments become much clearer after looking at the HTML
Nathan> file. :)
Nathan> The GNU Emacs (20.7) version of vc.el contains the following line in
Nathan> (setq vc-buffer-backend (vc-backend (buffer-file-name)))
Nathan> which looks like it might fix some problems, but I don't think adding
Nathan> last night did anything; I can try again.
Nathan> If there's anything else I can do, please let me know. I hope what
Nathan> done is helpful.
