Sourceforge is too busy now to allow any checks, but I did an update
to HEAD and found that two files have been updated from when I built
the installer:
I tried to diff but I am getting an error message all the time.
Anyway the viewcvs.py in the installer is max 2 revisions back from
1.232 so if you can diff these (1.232 and 1.230) then you can see what
has changed in the meantime and find out if a solution has been
included or not.

In the installer there is an included cvs.exe (2.0.11), it gets used
by ViewCvs if the detected version of cvs.exe is older than 2.0.4,
otherwise I point viewcvs to use the same as is used by the CVSNT
