No, it's 1.11.16 on a Linux box.  I don't get this problem with my
1.11.16 client, only the cvsNT 2.0.41a client.  If it's the server
spewing this, then why does it only happen when something changes on the
client?  It really seems as if the client is sending incorrect data up
to the server.  I've even run it in parallel on 2 different boxes, and
only one (where I modify my sandbox) shows the error.

The 'was lost' is coming from the server.  The move away is just the
client trying to make sense of the incorrect information it's being fed
by the server.

The client is behaving correctly in this case.  As others are not having
this problem I suspect you're using a patched server??
