Hi gang,

I have been trying to get Eclipse to work with our cvsnt server and have 
hit a wall. I was wondering if anyone out there in cvsnt land might have 
some input (especially maybe Tony or Arthur).

I dumbed our whole setup down to the following specs: cvsnt2.5.03.2382 
(server), linux Redhat EL4, with windows clients running Eclipse 3.3. We 
are connecting with pserver. I also have the cvsnt server configured to 
emulate the old cvs functionality (respond as cvs 1.11 and the -n update 
bug), although these compatibility options seem to not make a difference 
at all.

Ok, so here's the problem. If I connect and try to browse the repository 
using Eclipse's browser (perspectives or otherwise), I get the following 

Resource CVSROOT/ is not a child of folder 

The part that says "CVSROOT" is variable. It seems to get stuck trying to 
recurse the directory structure (in the case, seemingly getting stuck 
trying to get a directory listing of the CVSROOT folder, but could be any 
folder I put in the module fields). This also happens if I try to check 
out any module that has subfolders. 

The interesting thing to me though, is that if I try this with the exact 
same setup except with the server running on windows instead of linux, it 
seems to work fine. That's why I'm posting here instead of the Eclipse 
list. What is different between cvsnt on linux and cvsnt on windows that 
might cause this sort of behavior?

Thanks a lot!
