Dunno if it is just my installation of VS2003, but all 3 of the options fail 
to accomplish anything.  In fact, I would have expected Ignore, at the very 
least, to continue working fine, but even Ignore will cause one of those std 
window error msgs "The application has terminated unexpectedly...".

I'll have to try it on another PC at some later point in time and see if it 
is more functional.

Ahhh - will take a look into that as well.  Not necessarily as practical as 
being able to click to continue, but will try that.

I guess there was never any part of the CVS design to have the cvs.exe 
listen to the port in the foreground?  (kind of like a non-spawned daemon in 
linux).  That would avoid the need for the cvsservice wrapper while 
devleopping / testing...
