Ah, now we're talking. I think that was actually me who reported this. 
This was when you accidentally mix up vendor branch and release tag on 
import. This does not seem to be what is happening here, though...

Sure but I should still be able to import to the same branch shouldn't 
I? As I said before, I do exactly this about once a week, last time two 
days ago using CVSNT 2.0.30 and it did not try to stop me from doing so.

In everybody's best interest, please do not post or CC technical
questions to me in private unless they are specifically about a
macro/product of mine that is NOT already bundled with WinCvs. I will
generally forward my replies to such posts to the CVSGUI list without
further notice.
