It tells nothing intersting...

Using the cvsnt version for linux I get the 'connection reset by peer'
problem mentioned by many others.

And another strange thing:

When I use the cvs 1.11 which comes whith gCvs, I sometimes get
'Notify commnads require write access' and some times I get
'Connection reset by peer' and other times I get 'recieved broken
pipe'. But in all cases a tcpdump shows the connection was reset by
the foreign host. May be cvs 1.11 gives a misleading error message?

When do the same actions to my local cvsnt-server, all goes well
independent of the version of the client I actually use.

I'll instrument the pserver_protocol to get a trace of the raw data...
