You still don't understand what this does...
There are 2 sets of checkboxes, one for the 'Generic non-cvsnt' client
and one for the CVSNT client.
You select which to *display* using the combobox and then you set the
flags for that client type. So first set the non-cvsnt to something,
then change the combo to cvsnt and set it to something else.
Now change the combo back to the non-cvs and you will see how the
flags change depending on the displayed client type.
CVSNT keeps all of these 6 flags separately in the registry and by
decoding the client call it senses which client type is calling and
applies the correct behaviour depending on this.
The combobox is not a setting in itself, it could have been replaced
by a tabbed dialogue instead with the same result. Its displayed item
is not saved.
