tortoise uses????

What exactly do you mean here? Which files are "newer" than which?

They get corrupted if you cvs add them to your repository using the
server build 2151????
What version do you use on the client side? Corruption may also be
caused by an erroneous varsion on the client because client and server
do co-operate in mysterious ways, I found. And don't give the Tortoise
version, it does not say anything. What you should do is check the
version of cvsnt that tortoise is using.

I have run 2151 for quite some time without problems like this. But I
am now using 2382 and 2260 on two servers that definitely work OK.
