Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

The user is not locked out--if the same user runs CVS on a different client, 
it works just fine. I also don't see anything obvious in the PDC's event 
log, is there anything to search for?

Is there some cached information on the CVS client? I tried CVS logout and 
looking for a cvspass entry in the registry to no avail.

Perhaps this is a bug which was fixed in the last year, though I haven't 
found any documentation about it. We're running 2.0.4; I'll the server 
sometime in the next few weeks after we pass the current crunch time.
