I would have tested with Xcode 1.5 (Mac OS X 10.3.7) and/or Xcode 2.2 (Mac 
OS X 10.4.11) both use CVS 1.10 by default I believe.

I just tried using Xcode 2.2 (Mac OS X 10.4.11) with the latest CVS Suite 
2008 and the "discard changes" works OK - I made changes to src/commit.cpp, 
and discarded them then made changes to src/admin.cpp and discarded that 
too - no errors.

So it looks like it may have been a bug introduced after Xcode 2.2 (maybe in 
3.x), or more likely it is a bug in CVS 1.12 (since that's an unstable 
release anyway).  I did contact Apple (quite a while ago) about considering 
replacing CVS 1.10 with CVSNT 2.5 since it's a) more modern and b) provides 
support for mac specific features (largely due to your help), and I got back 
an acknowledgement that it would be considered / passed along but that is 

If we could get some momentum behind Mac users of CVSNT all writing that 
they'd prefer to see the CVSNT client installed by default in Snow Leopard, 
especially if Apple are already considering shipping the unstable 1.12...
