Hello World,
Hello Arthur,
Hello Tony,

Linux Debian Sid
cvsnt client and server:

I try to execute the following command
cvs -d :pserver:andy at localhost:/cvs checkout -N -P -r1.1 -- 

and get the following response

cvs checkout: warning unrecognized response `cvsnt: cvsdelta.cpp:558: 
bool cvsdelta::patch(const ByteArray&, const ByteArray&, ByteArray&): 
Zusicherung "pos+len<=file1.size()" nicht erfüllt.' from cvs server

Zusicherung is german for assertion which obviously resolved to false.

What is the problem here? Is this bug fixed in 2.5.04?

Best regards
Andreas Tscharner                                   <andy at vis.ethz.ch>
