I had the same problem once too (last week) but generating the core dump
failed as well! The crash occurred while committing files.

I have atomic commits enabled, when the crash occurred 2 files were
committed and another 2 were not (4 files were modified in total). I do not
know how to make the roll-back work so I re-committed the missing files and
removed the ##copy## folders from the client side. I found it strange as I
thought atomic commit must either commit all files or none of them, but a
crash probably affects this behaviour.

Windows 2000 Server) and WinCVS Beta 13 (Build 1) on a different
Windows 2000 Server. Sorry but I do not have the exact errors that were
