What happens if you try the sspi protocol instead?
Supposedly this will not use the named pipes so the shared drive
workaround will not be needed.

I am rally interested to hear what comes out of this test so please
send me all details about the CVSNT server config and the client
(WinCvs) setup if you are successful with sspi.

Good luck,
