It's the name of the application.  It is not constant text and never has 

OTOH cvsnt on Windows strips the .exe, and won't return 'E cvs.exe 
server' in any version I can find, until 2.6.x, when it changes 'to 'E 
cvsnt server'.

This is exactly the same behaviour as cvs 1.11.x.. just rename or 
symlink the binary to something else and the message changes.  Eclipse 
shouldn't be assuming it won't change just because it hasn't yet.
