Glenn, I can tell you now that the problem doesn't seem to be tortoise. I've
been able to reproduce the bug using the CVSNT command line in two different
versions (2.0.34 and 2.0.38). I also uninstalled TCVS 1.6.10 and then
installed TCVS 1.6.7 and the problem still appears. And now I  realized that
the problem is just with a specific module from a specific repository. Other
modules from the same repository and from other repositories don't seem to
have the problem (all the repositories are in the same server). I've already
reported the bug in the CVSNT Bug Tracker.

I also have tried changing the TEMP directory(and the TEMP Env variable) and
it didn't work. The problem doesn't appear always,though. Sometimes (like 1
out of 10 times) UPDATE works OK. This is really the most weird bug I've
ever seen.

I'm starting to believe the problem is in the server(it runs CVSNT 2.0.12a)

I really appreciate your help.

You misunderstood me--there was a problem that Tortoise wasn't passing
the set temp path information to CVSNT before, so people weren't able to
set their TEMP path to something that made sense to them.  I believe
that it was that fix from the previous version that may have broken your
setup.  If you didn't have appropriate permissions set up, or a bad temp
path, then it would cause this to appear.  Check those out if you can:
Make sure the c:\windows\temp path exists and you have full permissions
to it, change your TEMP environment variable if necessary, etc.
