Hi Arthur,

I have installed 2.5.04 (3055) and I still get the same problem. Is 
there not something that I could run that would check all the flags for 
me. Why does it not tell me what flags are offending ? How do you 
normally fix offending RCS flags?

Is it better for me to run 2.5.03 or 2.5.04, now that I'm upgrading ?

I think if I cannot resolve this soon I will have to concede to losing 
all my history and re-adding all my modules so that we are running the 
latest version of CVS. Then on a virtual machine I will install the old 
CVS 2.0.51d and if anybody needs older history they can get it from that 
machine. Not ideal but the gears must turn.

Thanks for the help.
