When you have an XP machine and you do not connect your network cable,
then Windows brings down the TCP/IP networking completely!
CVS is a service that uses TCP/IP so it cannot run in that situation.

In such cases if you install the Microsoft Loopback adapter Windows
will keep TCP/IP running and you can run even when the cable is not
