Hello Tony,

There are some ugly messages from the server (cvsnt.org):

Actually I have tag CVSNT_2_0_x in my sandbox and I want to get the
cvs -z9 -q update -P -d -r CVSNT_2_0_58sp (in directory K:\cvs\cvs_nt\cvsnt\)
? cryptlib
? zlib/win32/Release
cvs update: Read data failed (5): error:00000000:lib(0):func(0):reason(0)
cvs [update aborted]: reading from server: error -1
Next time I try the same line all works well! (only a rename conflict
with "test_new.txt", looks like cross branch rename doesn't work)

Afterwards I switched back to CVSNT_2_0_x. That works like expected.
When I now do a simple update I sometimes get another warning message:
cvs -z9 -q update -P -d (in directory K:\cvs\cvs_nt\cvsnt\)
cvs server: warning:  is not (any longer) pertinent
M cvsnt.vcproj
So what is any  longer perinent???

Both messages can sometimes be reprotuced and sometimes not (I se a
50:50 chance).

cvs version
Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.58a (client/server)
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.58a (client/server)

Client build from the latest sources (just a few minits ago).

Both can be reproduced on win32 and solaris.

And another thing:
When I do an explicite update to a branch already present in my
sandbox I get also the rename/conflict error:
cvs -z9 -q update -P -d -r CVSNT_2_0_x (in directory /export/home/rich/osdev/cvsnt_2/cvsnt/)
? autom4te.cache
? solaris_patches.txt
? contrib/xxyyzz
? cvsagent/win32/ChangeLog
? doc/cvs.tar.gz
? doc/version.inc
? src/server.c.mod
? src/xx_hardlink.h
cvs server: test_new.txt has been renamed to 
cvs update: unable to rename ./test_new.txt: No such file or directory
cvs update: move away ./test_new.txt; it is in the way
C test_new.txt
But the version of test_new.txt is already sticky tag CVSNT_2_0_x.

Best regards,
 Richard                            mailto:r.wirth at wirthware.de
