Upgrade your Unix server to CVSNT  If your organisation is 
moving away from Putty then it is quite likely they want real server 
auditing which CVSNT provides (yes CVSNT runs on Unix).

CVSNT client includes an SSH client so all you really need is:
cvs -d :ssh:hostname:/repo ver

> I can manually type this command at the WinXP command prompt and it WORKS:

Then it looks like a bug in your SSH client - contact the vendor and ask 
them what is happening - surely that is why you are opting for a paid 
solution to an open source one...

If I had to guess I'd say it is probably relying on something in the 
environment that doesn't work when it is called as a subprocess.

There is an alternative way of using ext, with extnt.ini - search the manual 
or newsgroup for tips, it will probably give the same result though.
