I'm using CVSNT 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382 on a Windows 2003 SP2
server. I only need to use the client part.

My CVS repositories are on a Linux server running version 1.11.21.

After a bit of fumbling around, I was able to manually checkout out some

That went well. Except that I get the following error when trying to
checkout one project:

[log]cvs [log aborted]: unexpected '\x73' reading revision number in RCS
file foo

The error happens randomly.

Any idea what is wrong?
