Basically its falling over with a null pointer exception (the Windows debug dailog box suggests an attempt to

>I'm no expert at setting CVS up, but the fact that it work 25% of the time suggests that all communications and permissions would seem to be set up correctly??  No disrespect to anyone, but is 2.0.10 stable?  Has anyone been using it from a Websphere Studio platform?

WSAD isn't a platform I use (which tends to be what constitutes
'official' support on CVSNT) but one of the things the stable branch
is designed to do is to be static enough for outside projects to start
working with it (or reporting bugs as appropriate).   I'd expect it to
work OK by now.

2.0.10 is stable enough... there's the import problem I mentioned
(which is probably worthy of a 2.0.11 before I merge in any new stuff)
but it's not got anything else wrong with it that I'm aware of.
bugzilla is mostly wishlist stuff at the moment... I'm holding off any
major changes until I get 2.1.x back on track.

>The fact that it fails to write a dump is also strange - The directory where the dump is being written to has full r/w for all users (inc the CVSUser group). It gets as far as creating a 0 bytes file, and then stops, saying it failed to write the dump.

Maybe it's trying to write as LocalSystem (who isn't in 'Everyone'
