We've been running CVSNT for a few years now with nary a problem
(excluding operator errors...). Server is currently running on Win2k3
and is version 2.5.01 build 1976 Travis. Not sure if that's old or new
or what but it's been working fine and if it ain't broke don't fix it.

Most users are running reasonably up to date TortoiseCVS for the client
on Windows XP.

Just today we are having some trouble. When we commit certain files
(only a few) it seems that the client end isn't updating in the CVS
directory. E.g.

A file called history.txt
Current revision is 1.301
I commit successfully and revision moves to 1.302 according to the
client commit output
Server history.txt,v file all looks good and first line says HEAD is now
However the client still thinks it's 1.301 for some reason (in
CVS/Entries and in the $Id$ tag)
If I commit again the committed revision becomes 1.301.2.1 instead of
If I use the revision graph feature of TortoiseCVS it shows the sandbox
copy is 1.301 but shows 1.302 is there.

If I check out a completely brand new copy of the project I get 1.301
instead of the latest 1.302.

Any ideas? I couldn't really search since I don't really know what's
really going on or how to explain it.
