Eventutally got it working but:

The RepositoriesN still contain a full path (ie

The server setup dialog stores the prefix (as shown in its "Prefix"
field) with regular slashes (ie "d:/cvs/repositories"), while the
repository directories returned by the dir selector have backslashes
(ie "d:\cvs\repositories\sandbox"). This makes the check for
repository-under-prefix fail, unless the repository entry field is
manually edited in between to convert the backslashes to forward

Thx for the help.
