Indeed. It also happens with :pserver:-accessed SF.net repositories. I
hadn't gotten beyond testing the :ssh:-accessed one before I wrote my
post. Working with the CVSNT repository at cvs.cvsnt.org via anonymous
:pserver: does also not exhibit the problem.

Not as far as I can tell. All files I looked at seem alright and the
meta data looks alright as well. Older clients can handle it in any
case. Actually, apart from the hundreds of "move away" messages
everything appears to be working fine.

back to normal?

commandline but with a different version of the client eliminates the
The server I'm testing this against is the CVS 1.11.20 at cvs.sf.net .
