Recently I switched our CVS server from rock-solid version 2.0.58d to 
2.5.01, build 1976 (compatibility is set to "Non-cvsnt clients" and "Any 
CVS/CVSNT" clients are allowed to connect) and experienced following problem 
with the 'cvs history' command.

- for testing I deleted the CVSROOT/history file and created it again
- I've committed a file using SmartCVS
=> a new entry in the history file was added
- SmartCVS performs a 'cvs history' command, but "No records selected." - 
the same effect can be reproduced easily from the command line client:

> C:\test>cvs -d :pserver:tom at localhost/f:/repository history -a -x AMR -f smartcvs-tori
> No records selected.

The line in the CVSROOT/history file looks like

> M43008711|(null)|tom|localhost|smartcvs-tori/src/smartcvs/main/src/de/regnis/smartcvs/action/command/refreshmetainfo|1.2

According to my assumptation, the line should be selected by 'cvs history', 
because the "smartcvs-tori" is contained in the committed file's path.

Best regards,
Thomas Singer
