Hi all,


I have a strange issue with the < history > command with cvsnt.


If I try the simple command:


cvs history


It works fine but if I add the -D option then, after a while, I got an


cvs history -D "3 days ago" 

cvs [history aborted]: reading from server: error -1


or also with the -c option


cvs history -c

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


It happens both with wincvs on a remote computer and with cvs.exe on the
local server (hosting cvsnt).

We are using CVSNT 2.5.03(scorpio) build 2382.


I can't find any log on the server but in the temp dir I found an empty dir
with a name starting with "cvs-env" and also an empty file (O ko)

With a name like cvsnt.**********-small.dmp.


I haven't found any help on the web and google wasn't my friend, it didn't
give me any answer :-) .


Thanks for any help,
