No intermittent behaviour here, the connection is by way of VPN tunnel
and the behaviour is fully consistent with which client binaries
WinCvs is pointing at. If I use older versions then all is OK but with
2048 I get the authority error.
I am using a CVSROOT of the form :sspi:user at server:/repo towards the
2.0.38 server. So the password should be cached locally.
Is there any difference in the way the 2048 build interprets the
cached password? I have done the initial login way back using possibly
2.0.41 or similar as the client.
