Servers are out of scope here. I wanted to use both clients - stable
CVS-Client and beta EVS-Client - on the same machine. But after
installing EVS-Client the old CVS complains:

cvs [diff aborted]: the :pserver: access method is not available on this system

So the old CVS-Client isn't able to find its procol-dlls any more :-(
