Ah, so this should actually have been part of the CVSNT distribution? I had
been assuming it was a system DLL that should be part of the OS. In that
case I guess I should have addressed this to the WinCvs guys. I wasn't using
a full CVSNT installation on that client, just WinCvs 1.3b9. There's no
trace of either file name you mentioned on that machine.

Yes, I saw that. Didn't remember exactly what caused it but now you mention
It was just what I was expecting from 9x though, so nevermind... ;)

I'm pretty sure 9x clients are still relatively widely used, especially on
older hardware (such as my second-hand 300MHz notebook ;).
