This is unfortunately confirmed on my test server too....
I can verify that both precommand and postcommand are called but
loginfo is not.
It screws up my CVSMailer mail sending when committing an added file
if the add was done on a branch, but not when it is added on trunk.

If I edit a file in the folder while it is on a branch and then also
add a new file to the folder I have two committable files.
Now, when I cvs commit in the directory loginfo *is* actually called.
BUT(!) the added file is NOT listed in the loginfo call at all!
So loginfo erroneously shows only the edited existing file and not the
newly added file....
On trunk this all works fine.

I am running on the test PC (same version used as both
client and server).
