That's really odd - the protocol is getting messed up.  But at this
point a 'different' result is better than the same thing we've seen over
and over already - helps point to something different being wrong.

Please create a client log and send it to support at march-hare.com:

set CVS_CLIENT_LOG=log123
cvs ci -m "" 

After the commit you should find two files in the current directory
'log123.in' and 'log123.out' this is what I need to see.
