|Will you be providing a Windows 98 binary that will fix this problem:

I rarely bother to compile Windows binaries.  I do tend to post them on
cvshome.org when they are donated.

|cvs update -r cvs1-11-9
|cvs server: Updating .
|C devel-cvs
|cvs update: move away ./devel-cvs; it is in the way
|cvs server: Updating contrib
|cvs server: Updating contrib/elib

I've never seen that problem before.  Normally that message is generated
if there are two files in the repository of the same name and different
case and the checkout is from a case insensitive client and there isn't
much that could be done to avoid it.  But, assuming that you are
checking out from the cvshome.org repository this couldn't be the case.
Is this an import?

|I tried deleting DEVEL-CVS but that didn't make the problem
|go away.

If you are checking out from your own repository where you imported the
CVS source, try removing the devel-cvs file from your repository and
leave the DEVEL-CVS file.  You might try removing devel-cvs from your
CVS/Entries file in all cases it might appear too.

|The CVS 1.11.5 binary that I am using can work both locally

You shouldn't lose either capability with 1.11.9, though I must admit I
haven't tried compiling a Windows binary since 1.11.6 or so.
