Hi Tony,

Silly me :-) I didn't know that command... Just for the record though:
Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT)  (Build 62)
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT)  (Build 62)

But, like I've mentioned, we switched to the new clients when we started
having problems. So maybe the old client (from WinCVS beta 8 build
1) f*cked something up?:

Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT)  (Build 57a)
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT)  (Build 62)

> Clutching at straws...  Windows version/Language, processor, etc.?
Server: Win2KServer US, dual processor (I think 2x Xeon833 = P2's?)
Clients: WinXPPro US, Pentium4; Win2KPro US, Pentium2
Everybody's using NTFS.

I'm currently testing with a similar file and executing the
version-increment-batch-file many times, but the "h,v" is not getting
corrupted.. Which is good, I guess :-/
I'm testing with both the new (62) and old (57a) client, but I can't
reproduce it...

I guess I'll wait and see if it happens again...


PS. Is it safe to 'just' delete any old revisions in a ,v file?
