I got the same result at home with 1998. Would anybody be so kind to 
execute a

cvs -d :pserver:cvs:@cvs.cvsnt.org:/usr/local/cvs checkout -r 
CVSNT_2_5_03_2260 cvsnt

command in an empty directory, and tell me about the downloaded 
cvsnt/src/edit.c(pp) file?
I'm curious to know the exact extension of the file and its size in 
bytes, moreover the version of the CVSNT client used. If the 
extension/size are different compared to mines (edit.c, 42161 bytes), 
then there is something really wrong going on here at local.

My cvsnt\src\CVS\Entries there is:
/edit.c/ Feb 11 13:40:12 2006/-kkv/TCVSNT_2_5_03_2260

There is no change in operation between 1976 and 2260. Editor flag 
contain the branch after the first edit command (unless switch 'w' is 
used), but a new edit from another branch simply overwrites the editor 
flag, the previous one is removed.
