It wasn't installed by the installer on this machine.  Please check your 
install script dependencies for NT4.

It always worked fine here; perhaps it was a problem with people using 
@ARG and not magic "shift" to retrieve the commandline options (shift 
will take stuff from STDIN if you run out of commandline).

No, it is a large local drive that I changed the drive letter on.

I have no doubt that you do, but it doesn't work here and I got no 
output about what it was having a problem with.  If it logs something 
when "verbose" is turned on, I couldn't find it.  Can you describe a 
little more in detail how this feature works?  If it just updates the 
entire tree starting at the matching line, then I'll keep using my Perl 
script (which only updates the portion of the subtree where the commit 
happened).  What does the "Verbose output" do and where does it send 
that information?

I expected that 'cvs up' in a _working copy_ wouldn't be considered a 
server command, since it doesn't change the server contents.  The 
postcommand documentation is a little sparse (it might have helped if 
the docs pointed to the commit-files.html#syntax page as well as 
explained whether commands would be on the command line or sent via STDIN).
