What should go into this server-side sandbox? This is the cvs-serv6188
directory, right? In this directory I find just a CVS subdir with
an empty Entries, an empty Entries.Extra and following Repository:

I shouldn't have asked. I never saw this dialog box before... until a
developer called me 30 minutes ago. When trying to send it to
crashdump at cvsnt.org the mailserver mail.nodomain.org says:
504 <mail>: Helo command rejected: need fully-qualified hostname.
Is there any other place I can put it to? A FTP server or similar?

I will think of this in a good moment. Hope I can try my luck on the
sources in the next days.

Thank you for the fast support,
