We're having a problem trying to commit after creating a branch. 

We created a branch, switched to it, and modified a file. When we try to 
commit, (using cvs commit -m "comment" file.cpp) I get the error: 

'cvs [commit aborted]: reading from server: Invalid argument'

 - it most definitely is, in both trunk and branch. If I do an update and 
set the branch name in the sticky tag dialog, I get the file updated as I'd

We're using CVSNT and WinCVS 1.2.

gratefully appreciated.
