Hmmm... not sure how that works.  I tried building in Debug mode, and put an 
assert( false ) at the start of my method, but all I get is an Assert() 
error msg - Do you want to Abort, Ignore, Retry?  If I try attaching the 
debugger to the cvs.exe process at that point, it just seems to hang - no 
matter which option I chose (Abort, Ignor, or Retry).  The CVS output just 
hangs until I manually terminate the process.  Am I doing something wrong?

Is this the only way?  Am I missing something obvious?  Doesn't that mean 
that every iteration you have to go through this whole thing? (generate 
alert error, attach process, continue, etc.)
