[cvsnt] `state' not in the expected place

Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

The user name consists of letters only, and the same user can use CVS from
his computer at work. It is only when he commits something from his home
computer that there is a problem.
I haven't looked at the corrupted files yet, but we got the files back from
the backup, so we're ok for now.
I will continue to investigate the problem.
Thanks for your help so far.

Also (looking at the code) what is the username the affected machine is
committing under?  It looks like CVS/RCS doesn't check the username for
'magic' characters, so things like ';' or '@' in the username may bugger
things up somewhat (although I'm pretty sure NT doesn't allow these
characters in usernames anyway).
