Anything from random error to total loss of the repository, with anything in

You can also expect other apps to misbehave (Visual studio will apparently
randomly delete source files with it enabled) - it's not a cvsnt problem,

flawed... I haven't had any corruption reports from other AV packages, not
that I trust them...
