I saw you fixed it. Thanks, Tony :)

In WinCVS, right-click on a file and do "Log Selection". You'll get
something like
Rcs file : '/Test/myModule1/Hallo.txt,v'
Working file : 'Hallo.txt'
Head revision : 1.13
Branch revision :
Locks : strict
Access :
Keyword substitution : 'kv'
Total revisions : 13
Selected revisions : 13
Description :

Revision : 1.13
Date : 2003/2/9 7:9:47
Author : 'hhonisch'
State : ''
Lines : +0 0
Description :
€ +1 -1; commitid: 5383e45feba592c;
*** empty log message ***


See how "Description" is broken?

In TortoioseCVS, right-click on a file and select CVS->History, and you'll
see the broken comment text which is due to the missing semicolon.
Is the trailing semicolon after "commitid" going to stay? It wasn't there a
few builds earlier, and I patched Tortoise and WinCVS to handle that.
