Ok, I can reproduce the bug easily.

Client is Windows XP SP2,  server is Windows 2003 (probably with
latest patches).

Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.04 (Zen) Build 2428
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.02 (Servalan) Build 2115

The relevant part of -ttt output ('Validador-data-sources.xml' is the
newly added-but-not-commited-file):
