You mean, something went wrong EVERY time one of those "@d1 3" appears? So
it's not possible that it got corrupted somewhere and each edit/commit pair
would 'for some reason' simply copy the last, corrupted, revision log?

We have only this one entry in loginfo:
DEFAULT dgloginfo.exe "%{sVv}" "$USER"
...which has some other problems by the way, namely not working for people
outside the LAN, but that's not so important, since they mostly do 'update'.
I'll do a seperate post for this when 'this' is over :-)

We used the installer on the server / most clients (including the build
server). On my PC I only downloaded the zipped binaries and put the dir in

CVS  (Build 62) (Nov 22 2002) starting in test mode.
Adding repository d:/cvsroot
TEMP/TMP currently set to C:\WINNT\TEMP
Initialising socket...ok
*WARNING* Impersonation is disabled - all file access will be done as System
Starting auth server on port 2401/tcp...
Starting named pipe server...
CVS initialised successfully

(By the way, with impersonation enabled, we get some very strange behaviour.
I remember CVS being incredibly slow also CPU usage would go to 100%. Forget
about it for the moment, I will test it some other time when I have, in
fact, more time).

> Amount of free disk space on the server.
C: (windows + temp) 2.14GB
D: (repository) 502MB
