Jon and the list,

I found a problem with CVS 1.10.7, with RH 7.0, Caldera 2.4, UnixWare
7.1.X and OpenServer 5.0.X and the akopia cvs server.  If I use the bash
shell on each of the OS's the missing file is retrieved.  If I use sh, ksh
and tcsh it does not retrieve it.  If I use CVS 1.11.0 it works and does
not seem to be shell related.  This does not make any sense to me why a
shell would make a difference.  If any one else has a problem you may want
to upgrade to the latest version of CVS.

Good Luck,
