Actually I wasn't sure whose "fault" it was, since the docs say the CR's should not be stored by the server. Given that, the client did what it should under the circumstances. Maybe a later CVS version than 1.11.5 fixes this in the server? I'm not sure. I didn't edit the repo because I don't consider myself savvy enough about CVS yet to start playing with repo files directly, except to look at them with a curious eye. -- Doug Lee [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.dlee.org Bartimaeus Group [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.bartsite.com "Is your cucumber bitter?
