The checkout must be the same checkout command that was used to create 
the sandbox in the first place, otherwise it can't work (this has always 
been true).


$ cvs -d /usr/local/cvs co -d foo CVSROOT
cvs checkout: Updating foo
U foo/checkoutlist
$ cvs -d /usr/local/cvs co -d foo CVSROOT
tmh at sisko:~$ cvs -d /usr/local/cvs co -d foo CVSROOT
cvs checkout: Updating foo

plink has not changed between versions, and the ssh protocol only has 
minor upgrades.  It's possible the remote server is not letting you 
connect - can putty connect to it?
