I'm using Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382 
(client/server) on a linux server. I am trying to commit a changed .tmf 
file from a windows based client and get the following error message:

cvs commit -m "update from user" -- High0.tmf (in directory <local 
sandbox path>)
Checking in High0.tmf;
<repository path>/High0.tmf,v  <--  High0.tmf

from cvs server
cvs [commit aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if 

***** CVS exited normally with code 1 *****

 From my searching of this mailing list I can only find one mention of a 
similar problem under the heading "[cvsnt] bug: -kB binary delta with 
branch cause error" and you can read it here:

Does anyone have any advice about resolving or working around this error?
