Thanks, Tony, for the hint. I have downoaded Build 57j now. I did remove the previous 57c completely and did install the 57j. (The "cvs -v" now says that it is the 57j.) Frankly, I did not notice that the web page contains newer version, because when trying to download and save, I was warned that the file already exists -- i.e. the cvsnt_220.127.116.11.exe. Possibly, the build number could be the part of the instalation name. Anyway, the problem still remains (see extract from previous messages below). What should I try to find where the problem is? One thing that I have noticed after moving to Windows 2000 is that the .owner contained "Prikryl" before and contains "PRIKRYL" now -- i.e. the login name now in capitals. Could this be the source of the problem?
