Anyone have any suggestions on this? Where should I start looking?

Just to recap, if I put anything at all in the loginfo file, I can't do a
cvs add of a directory. The add actually goes through the server properly,
but the client hangs during the process (I used a couple of different
clients and all exhibit the same behavior). This is no good from an end
user standpoint. We have a fairly generic install, so I'm not sure where to
begin with this.



I checked the behaviour of cvs add in several different ways with or without
embedded spaces in the directory and file names and I could not get it to
show the symptoms you relay. I am now on 2115.

Note that if you have a loginfo file thta contains nothing (everything is
commented out) and it works, then you uncomment one line and it stops
working, I would immediately suspect the uncommented line!

You can be assured that the loginfo handling does work, but if the process
that is started from loginfo hangs then so will cvs.
