Hello *, after spending quite some I finally found a problem with CVSNT which I'd like to post for discussion. Within a java program using the netbeans CVS client, I try to check in a set of objects. Almost consistently the check-in runs through nicely, the commit too. Subsequently I want to attach a tag to all the files, which is preceded by a status operation. The first status call fails: Error communicating with lock server (send): No such file or directory So, the actual sequence is something like: add add ... commit status status ... tag tag ... Happens with :pserver:... as well as with :local:... on a Windows XP Prof. SP2 with CVSNT 2.5.03.2382. It does not happen on any Unix with a "normal" CVS. Initially I thought this is some bug, but finally I found in the sources, that the commit command just calls Lock_Cleanup() or so, which will close the lock server connection. If I do a reconnect after the commit(), the status() calls run through! The same happens after the last status() before the first tag(). Again a reconnect helps. Finally the same thing after every tag(). This might be OK if used from the command line, but not in server mode. What do you think? Regards, tge
