We only send "Case" if the server advertises that it supports it, so the 
cvshome server is advertising support for that option then breaking when 
  it is sent it - this is a server bug, not a cvsnt one.

It's probably just a bug with that version - 1.11.12 is not a stable 

FYI the cvsnt server hasn't done anything with that option for quite a 
long time.. it's not necessary for correct operation anyway.
