Nasty. The latest TortoiseCVS release uses 2.5.03 2260 of cvs.exe which
doesn't want to play with 2.5.03 2382 of the server.
If I use 2.5.03 2382 of the client (within TortoiseCVS or from command
line) it works fine.
Am I possibly doing something wrong here causing this incompatibility?
I've never had any issues like this before.
