See the thread "cvs diff: Internal error: >p_test_date must be an actual date, not TIME_ZONE_INFORMAATION >format." (May 4 & 5 of 2004) for response from the CVSNT developer and >his request for more information. This error happens extremely rarely (I know of half a dozen including this one in the entire history if CVSNT), and indicates a critical failure of the underlying API that returns time information. Something has presumably been installed which has broken the API... this is fatal, as CVSNT relies heavily on being able to query the information on files... hence I can't ignore the error, and the nature of the problem means it can't be patched around.
