installing the latest version of cvsnt (2.0.14) everything seems fine. But
with one complex project (TikiWiki) which also includes binary files with
'cvs commit -m "check CVS process"' at the end of all those commit messages
I receive

cvs server: nothing known about `Test'
cvs server: nothing known about `-m'
cvs server: nothing known about `check CVS process'
cvs server: nothing known about `--'
cvs server: Examining TikiWiki
cvs [server aborted]: correct above errors first!
cvs commit: Examining Test

cvs status README  (README is the only file changed) shows:

File: README            Status: Locally Modified

   Working revision:
   Repository revision: /tikiwiki/TikiWiki/README,v
   Expansion option:    (default)
   Commit Identifier:   (none)
   Sticky Tag:          (none)
   Sticky Date:         (none)
   Sticky Options:      (none)
   Merge From:          (none)

As commit worked with a small project only including text files I'm a little
puzzled what causes this problem. Any help will be appreciated.

Kind regards and Happy Xmas
