I did not know that the current temp dir contains the involved files...
Additional questions then:

What is the file structure of the temp "sandbox" at the time loginfo is called?
Are all module files there or only the ones affected by the command?
Are we talking about "normal" files as opposed to RCS files?
Could the file list actually be compiled by listing the files in te current dir?
And are there CVS metadata dirs also?

I know that for multi-folder commits the loginfo script gets called several times,
once per subdirectory.
So will the same directory structure be created in the tempdir as well? 
And will the current dir change for each invocation of the loginfo script?
Or will the full structure be there when the first call is made?
Or maybe there will be e different temp dir for each call to the loginfo script?

BTW, this morning I installed my modified CVSMailer (which changes the current
dir on start ) in the work server and so far there are no temp dirs remaining.
And I know there has been at least 10 or so commits since. Seems to work.

I will update the installer ASAP, but I will go away on vacation for a week
so it might not happen until I am back. Meanwhile the new exe file is separately
available as a link on my page.

That's how it's supposed to work - when the loginfo script is called its 
current directory is a working sandbox... in the case of client/server 
this is the server temp directory.  From this you can get extra 
information about the commit.

It always tries, but failure isn't fatal - partly because it happens 
after the client has disconnected and partly because on Unix the /tmp is 
usually cleared on each boot anyway.
