Fabrice, You could try downloading the latest test build of 2.5.04 from cvsnt.org/archive and try that on a test machine. It may have been spotted and fixed, but I'm sceptical.

I guess it's something that should be written in the cvsnt -B option to warn users IMO. We're using CVSNT on a big Excel File that is modified about 130 times a month, and with the requirement to keep a 3 months history... That's definitly not a good way to use CVS but I'm trying to deal with what I get in our Project Managment and I tried to lower the growing size using the optimized algorithm, I should have stayed with the old -kb tough!
