Unfortunately I have no idea *how* to do this in ViewCvs...
It seems by the output shown as ViewCvs is getting first the file
contents and then immediately following the extra text.
How can it even begin to remove the extra text in this case?

And what is causing the problem? The command ViewCvs is sending to
cvs.exe is:

"C:\Programs\cvsnt\cvs.exe" "rcsfile" "co" "-p1.6"

and the output is the contents of revision 1.6 of the file immediately
followed by three sets of:
Format = Insert Into %sSessionLog (Command,....'%s','%s','%s')
Argument 7 is null

Since the call contained only 4 arguments I fail to see what could be
done to remedy the missing 7th argument....

Anyway I will tell the ViewCvs guys that there is a problem here and
see what they can do.
