Thanks for all the feedback. We are trying to investigate the cause of the corruption.  We are also looking at moving the repositories to a linux server instead of the windows one we are currently using.

Hi guys,

For what it's worth this is a similar presentation to what we encountered after the cvs import (-ko) corruption I reported a couple
weeks ago. See http://www.cvsnt.org/pipermail/cvsnt/2007-January/028064.html for details. Incidentally, this was confirmed to be a
CVS corruption (very reproducible after restoring from backups and re-attempting the import - removing '-ko' from the import command
prevented further corruption). This particular mystery is still unsolved...
