Definitely not an occasional thing. 100% on affected machines/logins.

There are users both on the LAN and on the Internet. None of the Internet 
users are logged on to the CVS server in any way other that what CVS does. 
None of the Internet users access the CVS server using the username/password 
they are currently logged on to Windows with. This has all worked fine until 
2.5, and it still works fine in many places.

How can I find out if I use Kerberos? The server is out-of-the-box. Clients 
are out-of-the-box using sspi.

No old servers involved. How can I force NTLM (as a test)? Is it a server 
thing or a client thing?
