Hi all,

Following a recent upgrade of our CVSNT server from version 2.0.41a to 
2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382, we've discovered that when commiting files the 
Keyword Substitution has stopped functioning.
This is effecting all of our users.

We have various different clients in use:
WinCVS Beta 17 (Build 2)
SmartCVS 5.1.1

The server is a Win 2K3 SP1.
The clients are Win XP SP2.

I've checked the CVSNT Server configuration and confirmed that under the 
Compatibility Options the 'Ignore client-side force -k options' is not 
checked in either section (no idea if that's relevant anyway).

Any ideas as to what could be wrong?
We do use the :pserver: protocol (I know that's not best practice but this 
is not an externally visible CVS server) if that is relevant.

Cheers, Richard

PS. Following the upgrade we are receiving an error about "Couldn't open 
default trigger library:"etc.
