Hello World,

We have had an incident last week where a developer had overwritten the 
changes from another one. Although it was no problem to restore the 
changes, I'm a bit worried.

We first though about the usual suspects: Open IDE, copying and old file 
over the updated one, etc.
but the developer says none of them happened, so I wanted to ask:

Has anyone ever noticed a failure of cvs update that was really a cvs 
failure and not due to circumstances?

CVS Server: CVSNT 2.0.41a
Server System: Win2000
CVS Client: CVSNT 2.0.41a (using TortoiseCVS 1.6.13)
Client System: WinXP Prof, SP1

Best Regards
