I think the bug was the cause of my problems, it is now working :-)

While sandboxes on network drives is not supported,  could you tell me how
to solve the following scenario differently:

I have
- a webserver (Microsoft),
- a server for the repository (Linux),
- multiple PCs running different Windows versions for website (php)
development .

The idea is to put the sources of the websites being developed under
In the moment I am using WinCVS on the PCs, accessing the remote repository
via ssh.
CVS-modules get checked out onto a windows share of the webserver. This
allows a fast
preview of changes: save the file and press reload in the browser.

Any suggestions?
