As I already mailed to Pierre-Henri who so kindly helped me, I included the proper 
option (-x,v/) into the definition of the environment variable RCSINIT in my 
CONFIG.SYS (which configures OS/2), and my problem was solved.

I am mystified to read this since, as I explained above, RCSINIT seems already to be 
supported. OTOH, it could be that the effect I observed after adding RCSINIT came 
from the RCS. I would certainly be grateful for LyX support of RCSINIT, for any 
attempts on my behalf to define "-s" to substitute the standard "Exp" status with the 
more appropriate "Entwurf" (the German equivalent) failed.
Also, while we're at it, I should add that on my system, the equivalent LyX option of 
"rlog" (displaying the development of past versions) does not work. There are, 
however, a number of *.tmp files that get created in the working directory, and they 
contain the information that rlog would produce. It thus seems that this is a problem 
loading the information into a temporary buffer. The LyX dialogue box that results 
from using the option insists that there is no development history to be displayed.
I wonder whether this is a general problem or a specific one of the OS/2 version.

Many thanks for the quick help, and keep up the good work on this wonderful program,
