Well I'm not trying to accomplish something in particular, but I tought,
that since all the cvs client on the network are all using CVSNT already
(version 2.0.62 also) I guessed that when I saw this setting I tought
that I should set it to CVSNT client compatibility instead of the
generic non-cvsnt client. But alas, the feature is not working on my
server, anyway I can live without it also. I was mostly wondering if it
was a bug or not but you confirmed me that it's working on your side.
So I guess that my CVSNT server got some problem with that part.
