Hi Nuno,

What version of cvs server and client are you using? What OS?
I just ran through your scenario without any troubles. I checked out three
files one at a time to a specified directory. No error message and the
sandbox looked normal including the meta data files.
I'm using 2.5.03 Build 2382 for both server and client. Both systems are
running WinXP. I'm also using SSPI instead of SSH. Don't know if that
