This happened because someone put a copy of iconv.dll in system32.. I'd 
*expect* breakage in that case (and not just of cvsnt either).

Libraries used by applications should be in the application directories, 
nowhere else.  Static linking of cvsnt.cpl is just not practical as it 
depends on the rest of the cvsnt system to work - it isn't linked 
directly to iconv.. it's linked to cvsapi, cvstools and the various 
installed modules (determined at runtime).  cvsapi in turn is linked to 
iconv, the various databae DLLs (loaded as needed at runtime), etc.
