I was checking a modification I have done to CVSMailer and therefore I
had edited two files in my test sandbox, one in the main module folder
and one in the subdir 'Source'.
When I committed these using WinCvs I got this strange feedback:

cvs commit -m "Testing CVSMailer" (in directory

The server runs on the same XP-Pro SP2 workstation as the client.

I am using the shadow file to perform an update on a simulated website
and this is what it looks like:



1) For some reason it looks like cvs is *executing* the output to
STDOUT from my commit! Look at the text below "CVSMailer sending

2) The file I have modified in the Source subdir is never committed!

3) The shadow file should get into action when the *whole* processing
is done AFAIU, but in this case it looks like it triggers directly
when the commit in the main folder is done. And after this is done the
really screwy thing with the execution of my command happens where it
should have committed the Source dir.

Why is this?
