Hi all,

I have a problem with CVSNT v2.5.03 build 2382 on the client and server. When I check out or update sources I get the following message for some of the folders. The folder names change randomly:

cvs server: cannot remove <directory-name> directory: Directory not empty

The command I run is the following:

cvs.exe -Q -z3 -d <CVSROOT> co -P -d workspace -D "<DATE-AND-TIME>" <MODULE-NAME>

Did anyone experience these kind of messages before? How can I fix this problem.
