I run CVSNT 2.5.03 on a Window 2003 server, within a domain. The server 
ask the users to change password every 30 days. When a user change the 
password on a machine within the domain, no problem.

Some users are using portable PCs that came with Windows XP Home 
installed, and cannot join the domain, obviusly - anyway I think it 
could happen with any PC not in the domain, but did not test it.

They use CVSNT via sspi performing a cvs login.

When they have changed the domain password and attempt to perform an 
operation on CVS, they get the error "Error reading from server <server 
name>: -1 Unknown error", I believe because the login is no longer 
valid. After another succesful cvs login, everything works.

I understand the problem, but could the error be made more informative?
