On first look, this doesn't necessarily look like a vc problem to me - doesn't
the above mean that your "co" command failed (exited with a non-zero status
code (1))? Did you try it on the command line, without vc?

On a related note, version 1.41 of the vc package is the "old" vc, which is on
its way out of the way of the long overdue sync of vc with GNU Emacs plus
some additional utilities, and it's unlikely that the old one will receive
much attention any more at all. It would be very helpful if you could test
the current vc package from the experimental packages area.
