"C:/Programme/CrossVC XXL 2.1/Tools/cvsnt.bin/cvs" -x  update -kk -P -d -j  

We use the CVSNT binary shipped with CrossVC XXL 2.1 pre2. But it's the  
same version (2.5.03 B 2382) and we had the mentioned problem with a CVSNT  
installation fetched from cvsnt.org also.

BTW the output of the command for the concerned binaries is a simple  
update message:
U res/Back.ico
for instance.

The cvsrc file in CVSROOT on the server is empty.

Ok, I have disabled these lines.
