In VS2003, is there a way to attach to the CVS process and put a breakpoint 
in the CVS code and step through the code line by line?  I manage to attach 
to the cvsservice, and put a breakpoint in DoCvsThread() method (line 739), 
but not quite sure how to step through from that point to be able to break 
in commit.cpp itself.  I'm able to step through to RunFile (line 185) where 
it seems like the cvs process is launched, but there is no way I can be 
quick enough to attach the CVS process in time.  I've put a breakpoint in 
commit.cpp, in the long shot that it might somehow be attached, but no such 

Is there an easier way to do this?  How do you guys debug this?  Is there 
any way to debug this thru the editor?
