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.

It also happened to me, when I committed the CVSROOT folder the
administrative database didn't get rebuilt. I solved the problem
as soon as I found that the code that checks if the database
has to be rebuilt makes a case-sensitive comparison with an hardcoded
_uppercase_ string "CVSROOT". Therefore if you checkout CVSROOT
like this:

cvs checkout cvsroot

or "CvsRoot" or any string different in case from "CVSROOT"
the checkout will succeed (because FAT and NTFS are case-insensitive
file systems) but commit will _not_ rebuild the administrative database.
You have to do

cvs checkout CVSROOT

Hope it helps,
