Re: CVS pserver login bug in client

Unfortunatly, with the space after the -d, I didn't
log in.  I couldn't checkout, couldn't commit, and no
.cvspass file was created.  After I removed the space,
the .cvspass file was created and accessing the cvs
pserver worked ok.

I know for a fact that the first login did not
succeed, because I tried multiple times to log in with
the space after the -d, getting the same warning
message, and the inability to log in, every time.  So
yes, it does indeed have something to do with
something.

I'm only trying to help.
