Thanks for your comments Glen. I'm running CVS-NT v2.0.24 and WinCVS Mergepoints work exactly as they should do most of the time. I
know about the null delta patch, I think it was some questions from me that
prompted the most recent discussion of it.

The only time I cannot get mergepoints to work is when a file is added to
one branch and then merged across to another branch. Both branches were in
existence before the file was added. Does this exact scenario work ok for
