Hi Carl,

No, 2003 with Active Directory.

Life with the 2003 server seems quite stable at the moment. This was
actually the first time I had a service bring the machine to its knees...
guess I should think about installing some controls to limit the amount of
CPU that the service can use, so should things get fubar, at least there
will be enough free cycles to shutdown the service and do a soft restart.
Windows System Resource Manager would be ideal, but IIRC it only works on
the Enterprise or Datacenter variants :(

Thanks. I think its probably some obsure race condition in the cvsnt
server... if I get some time I'll fire up the debugger on the service and
try to track it down... at the moment I'm just having way too much fun
getting viewcvs up and running on the server :)
