RE: why does wincvs show all files as modified

I'm having a similar problem, but I am under the impression that it is 
related to an incompatibility between cygwin's cvs.exe and WinCVS, the 
problem being related to the timestamps the these two application 
formulate. However, early on the the diagnosis of my problem, David 
(sorry, don't know your last name) sent me a patched WinCVS cvs.exe. 
Maybe it is applicable to the problem you are reporting. (You aren't 
using cygwin cvs.exe, are you?).


Do you have any patches for the timestamp problem that are applicable 
to WinCVS users that aren't using cygwin cvs.exe?


Would anyone care to comment on the joint use of cygwin cvs.exe and 
WinCVS - whether it is advisable, what to watch out for, how to 
configure the two systems to make sure they are compatible, etc. On the 
one hand, I am tempted to advise against their joint use. There is this 
problem with false locally modified flags and at least a couple of 
problems related to linefeeds. On the other hand, I'm wondering if a 
proper solution to the problem is to point one's cygwin PATH to the 
WinCVS version of cvs.exe. Can anyone see a problem with this approach.
