In addition to the problem below (I haven't seen any response, so I
assume it's a known bug), I'm also seeing a similar problem on update.
If I commit or modify a file while updating, suddenly it stops knowing
that a file is Modified and instead decides that they are all Lost.
None of these "lost" files are modified on the server, only in my local
sandbox.  It seems as if a change to the sandbox makes the cvsNT client
lose it's way somehow.  Is there anything I can do to help debug these
problems?  The responses are quite confusing to the users.

Subject: [cvsnt] Update problems with 1.11.16 server?

I run cvs -nq update twice, and get different results.  The first set is
wrong, the second is right.  During the first update, I modified a file
in the score directory.  It doesn't appear in the list (I wouldn't
expect it to), but from that point on cvs generated the warnings instead
of the modified messages.  Even a trivial change such as adding and
deleting a space so the file is exactly the same but the mod time
changes causes the issue.  My 1.11.17 client seems to handle it


Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.41a (client/server)
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.16 (client/server)
