I have been using the command-line CVS, but another user has been using WinCVS. Known Facts: - the contents of the repo version seem fine, AFAIK. - the file seems to have gone bad after version 1.4; the first 4 versions worked hunky-dory - at the time of the problem, the file in question was the only one in the project with the readonly bit _NOT_ set; setting this bit results in the next repo action (I used a tag) returning "end of file from server", and a subsequent tag again returning "cannot rename file ... File exists". Any thoughts? Anybody?
