Using CVSNT with SSPI authentication from tortoise CVS a checkout of a
branch was done into an empty directory. Some of the files were immediately
marked as being updated.
The Entries file in the CVS directory on the client correctly identified the
file version as but doing a diff showed differences. It was
eventually discovered that the contents of the file were version
There were other files also in a condition where the Entries file had the
correct version listed, but the contents were previous revisions (not always
the version before, one was 5 revisions old).
We can't reproduce this issue.

Has anyone seen anything along these lines?
