Can you explain more in detail how you managed to switch to another
user for checkout using sspi???
SSPI normally uses the Windows login for connection so what you
suggest indicates that you have logged out, then log in as another

But SSPI can also be used by changing the connection string to:
 :sspi:user at server:/repo
With this syntax you need to do a cve login (once only) where you give
the password of the indicated user.
Then CVS operations should work and are now using the new account.
Is this what you did?

I switch between the two all the time and I use various servers
ranging from 2.0.38 to 2.0.41a to and I do not see any
trace of your problems....
