sserver works OK - I regularly use it to talk to the cvsnt repository. 
You'll need to use the CVSNT client (although there is special support for
one of the other forms of sserver, it's only client side).  The patched
WinCVS 1.2 speaks a version of sserver that appears to be obsolete - I've
been unable to find a server that it's compatible with, so I can't provide
working support.

I can't imagine why it would crash (the client side is relatively simple)
unless it's picking up a dodgy version of the openssl libraries somehow.
