I patched our TortoiseCVS to ask for password if "Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password." message is returned, but it does not work in many cases when CVSNT reports "-1: Unknown error". "cvs login" command needs to be invoked in such situation. AFAIK, this was not accepted as CVS bug :-(( Jan -----Original Message----- From: cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org [mailto:cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org] On Behalf Of Guy Bowden Sent: Monday, December 06, 2004 13:05 To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: Re: [cvsnt] Tortoise CVS not asking for password It seems it was an issue with CVSNT 2.0.58 (I saw another post saying that this release wasn't good) - I've installed 2.0.51d and now get prompted for a password once again.
