Hello everyone, This is my first posting to the list. We recently switched from cvs running on a Mac with OSX to CVNT running on Windows Server 2003, we are using the latest stable version. We have observed what appears to be a bug: if one checks out a module using cvs checkout -d the module is correctly checked out to the specified directory, however, if the same command is run again I see a raft of "move away [filename]; it is in the way" errors, my understanding is that cvs should update the directory. Indeed, if one omits the -d switch everything works as expected. It seems that files checked out with -d are not subsequently recognized by CVSNT as being from the repository. I have double-checked this bug by creating a new module and then checking out using -d, I did this to eliminate the possibility that there might be a latent problem with files moved from the Mac. I google'd this issue and found a couple of people with the same problem, but no resolution. This is a near show-stopper for us because we have hundreds of build scripts that use cvs checkout -d, it simplifies matters because the same command can be used for the initial checkout and updates.
