Hello CVSNT list,

I am a CVS user for some years, and recently I have migrated a Linux 
machine to the CVSNT The main reason for this change 
regarded to the CVSNT Unicode support, as the repositories gained the 
requirement to support them recently. Everything is working fine, when I 
use CVSNT through the network by using :pserver:, :gserver:, :sserver: 
and :sspi:.

The problem starts when I need to use :ext: scheme. My team uses 
TortoiseCVS and TortoisePlink to connect to the CVS repository. Whenever 
we use this combination with CVSNT, we get the following message:

    E cvsnt [server aborted]: _path_to_repository_: no such repository

How to reproduce:

1) Install CVSNT in a Linux machine.
2) Configure the /etc/cvsnt/Pserver as usual:

Repository0Description=A CVS Repository

3) Ensure that xinetd/CVSNT pserver service is working fine.
4) In the command line, do:

    $ cvsnt server

(This will cause the CVSNT software to enter in the same state it gets 
when you use :ext: protocol on the client side.)

5) Now enter the 'root' directory you want to use:

    Root _path_to_repository_

6) The CVSNT will issue these messages:

    E cvsnt [server aborted]: _path_to_repository_: no such repository

I think it is a BUG, or maybe I missed some "misterious configuration" 
_not documented elsewhere_ ...
