we keep having some (little) problems which seem to result from our
sandboxes staying on a network drive (for backup reasons).
When trying to perform an update ("cvs update -P -d -C" via WinCVS
- which should remove empty directories) I receive an error message
cvs update: cannot remove dir1/dir2/dir3 : Directory not empty
if directory 'dir3' does not contain any files (at least on the
branch I am performing the update on).
When I copy the sandbox to a local folder and perform exactly the
same command the directory 'dir3' is removed as expected.
Searching the web I found a posting to gnu.cvs.bug describing exact
the problem I am facing (together with a possible solution):
Unfortunately I'm no expert in these things and cannot tell if the
patch is correct or not or if there may be any other sideeffects.
Is there any chance to integrate this patch into a future release of
BTW We are using CVSNT 2.0.3 (client and server).
