Hi, I am using CVSNT 18.104.22.168 Build 41 (the latest stable) as CVS server on Win2k with several CVS clients on Linux/HP/Sun and other Windows machines. The protocal is :ext: with CVS_RSH=ssh, using sshd from Cygwin as SSH Server on the Win2k box. Everything works fine, except that all user names in the CVS log files appear to be SYSTEM instead of the real username, i.e. I get date 2001.12.06.06.14.02; author SYSTEM; state Exp; instead of date 2001.12.06.06.14.02; author jakobus; state Exp; sshd has been installed as service under the system account, but of course e.g. "ssh cvs_server whoami" correctly reports "jakobus" and not "SYSTEM", and also I see that CVS calls the external program ssh with the command line argument "-l jakobus". Other attempts to debug SSH (running the daemon in debug mode with options -ddd or calling ssh with the -v flag) clearly show that the ssh authentication works correctly. So I assume that this is a problem of CVSNT not getting the correct user name. Is anybody else observing this? Any idea what the reason might be? Any workaround that I might use?
