We are using v2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382 (client/server).

I'd be curious if anyone else can replicate this problem.  We are 
encountering it on four windows xp boxes.  To quote from the original 

We just recently started running CVSNT (Windows XP) with the :ssh: 
protocol.  The problem I'm encountering is that if, for example, I try 
to do a 'cvs commit' but then close notepad without editing the log 
message, I can't enter anything at the "a)bort, c)ontinue, e)dit, 
!)reuse this message unchanged for remaining dirs" prompt.  It seems 
like all stdin is ignored and all I'm able to do is CTRL-C to kill cvsnt.
