When I run the build 43 CVS client under Windows 2000 Pro, I now get an
"Application Error" when I do

cvs edit "filename"

from the command line.  I haven't yet tried it with WinCVS or the like, but I
could if necessary.

The error is included as a screen-capture bitmap, but here's the text:

cvs.exe - Application Error

        The instruction at "0x00405465" referenced memory at "0x00000008".  The
memory could not be "read".

Even though the GPF happens, the file does get set to edit mode (its file
attribute goes from +R to -R).  This only seems to happen in the cases where cvs
edit produces output about the file(s) to be checked out, like this:

        tree.html       mstopper        Mon Dec 10 15:10:21 2001 GMT
mstopper-c800   D:\sandbox\PDe\webroot

Most times, I don't see any output from edit, but on those times that I see
output like the above, I get the GPF.  Is this a known bug or is there some
configuration to get around it (like supressing the output info from cvs edit?)
