Yep - I've reproduced that  - thanks.

The server dev.eclipse.org is CVS 1.12.12, not an EVS server, at this point 
in time I am primarily canvassing for people to test EVS Server with either 
EVS Client, or any CVS/CVSNT client.

EVS Client provides March Hare with some business benefits (it's newer - 
simpler and easier to maintain than CVSNT and CVS clients) and it also 
supports some new EVS commands (that only work with EVS Server).  So for a 
user of CVS 1.12.12 like yourself, the EVS client really does not provide 
any benefit - it probably never will, hence why I am primarily interested in 
testing the server at this point.

I've looked at the code, and documented the crash reasons in a bug (bug 
5112).  I've fixed the "crash" but the checkout still doesn't work for 
reasons that may be related to the crash or may not be related to the 

Ive also created bug 5113 which lists things that should be a part of the 
automated EVS tests - and added a test that the EVS server should handle 
modules with a "period" in the name like org.eclipse.swt.  I will test this 
the next time I do an EVS build.

Thanks for your help!
