I got an urgent problem:
I want to commit  a complete module. It is possible to commit all but 3 files. These
3 files cause all the same type of message:

cvs commit -m "peters test" Analog.c (in directory D:\Temp\Liquiport 2000\src\)
Checking in Analog.c;
E:/CVS/mpu/ASP2000/Liquiport 2000/src/Analog.c,v  <--  Analog.c
new revision: 1.5; previous revision: 1.4
cvs [server aborted]: cannot rename file E:/CVS/mpu/ASP2000/Liquiport
2000/src/,Analog.c, to E:/CVS/mpu/ASP2000/Liquiport 2000/src/Analog.c,v: Permission
cvs commit: invalid data from cvs server

*****CVS exited normally with code 1*****

Funny is the komma in front of the file E:/CVS/mpu/ASP2000/Liquiport
"E" is the drive on our cvs-server.
I checked the read/write-permissions in this drive. Before the "commit"-command, the
file-attribute of analog.c is set to read-only, after the unsuccessful
commit-command write is enabled.

I updated the file to get a clean copy from the server, then changed just one line
in the file and tried to commit it again, but the problem occurred again, so it has
nothing to do with our changes we made.

We use WinCVS as client software Beta 8 (Build 1),
the server is cvsnt Build 57d

Thanks a lot for your support, as this problem is really important for us.
