I am seeing an issue with multiline comments when committing files..
Unless the comment contains a space character, server-side scripts such
as commitinfo and loginfo only appear to receive the first line of the

This is fine:

cvsnt commit -m "a multiline
comment" testfile

This isn't:

cvsnt commit -m "multiline
comment" testfile

The ,v file actually committed to the repository contains the full
multiline comment, implying that the problem is on the server side.

Is this a bug or am I missing something?  CVSNT is 2.5.03 build 2151 on
Solaris 9 on both client and server side, using pserver protocol.
