I had the same problem with 3.1, but upgraded to the latest to see if it 
made a difference.

Yes, I know. I fiddled with every possible combination of these, trying to 
get it to respond the way Eclipse is expecting, and it seems to make no 
difference whatsoever.

Did that too, but pserver seems better supported by Eclipse, so I was 
trying that too. extnt is where we will eventually have to go, because 
cvsnt is integrated with our AD server and Eclipse doesn't support sspi. 
For testing though, I was using pserver just to eliminate a few variables. 

Again, since you didn't address my real question, everything seems to work 
fine when I am running the server on Windows. It's only the Linux version 
that is broken. Can anyone explain this?
