Krzysztof, For detailed technical questions - like yours about specific lines of code and functions are best sent to the cvsnt-dev mailing list: http://www.cvsnt.org/pipermail/cvsnt-dev/ Or nntp://news.cvsnt.org/support.cvsnt-dev Be sure to refer to specific version numbers of source or version/build of binaries, and we prefer that testing/development be done on the latest 2.5.05 (branch CVSNT_2_0_x). Also it often helps if you can supply a 'real world' scenario where the problem can be reproduced using the command line client (if not a 'test' script - at least describe 'how').
