Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

CVSNT version: 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382

bug 1:
A ucs-2 file a.txt:
1. cvs add -ku a.txt
2. cvs ci -m "" a.txt
3. touch the a.txt
4. cvs st a.txt, get:
  Status: Locally Modified

bug 2:
if the a.txt get conflict, cvs will corrupt the file.
See the attachment.

I notice these bugs only occur if I use Client/Server mode, and the
client is on Windows. Client/Server both on Linux works fine. :local: on
Windows works fine too.

It is a big problem to us. We have lost several files.
Hope it counld be fixed soon.
