...except I am not a C++ programmer, I don't have a Windows C++
development environment set up, I am not familiar with debugging C++
applications on the Windows platform, I am not familiar with the
internal architecture of the CVSNT client, and my employer pays me to
develop C# .NET retail database applications, not troubleshoot
development tools.

Personally I would love to learn some new stuff and solve this puzzle. I
really enjoy that sort of thing. I also understand completely why you're
suggesting this, and agree with it.

Professionally I can't devote the time to doing that, and if I can't get
assistance from those who are already living every day in the CVSNT
client source then I will recommend either opening a paid support issue
with March Hare or moving from CVSNT to the Cygwin CVS, which does not
exhibit this problem.

  The first time I saw a bagpipe, I thought the player was torturing
  an octopus. I was amazed they could scream so loudly.
