Re: why does wincvs show all files as modified

The patch I submitted for incorporation to WinCVS should
show up in the next release (1.2.1 perhaps).  The specific
issue addressed was the difference in date/time
stamp for days of the month from the first through the
nineth for Unix/cygwin versus Visual C++ (WinCVS).  The
bug should crop up only if you are mixing clients accessing
the same cvs working area.  The fix adopts a standard string
format for date which uses a leading space, not a 0 (e.g.
Apr  9, not Apr 09), as prescribed by the Standard C Library.  

I have not used cvsnt, so I can't say whether this is the same
problem.  If Sascha were to update her working area now
(since we're past the single-digit April dates) yet the Mod file
indication persists, then this is not the same problem.  I would
then suspect a daylight saving time transition bug (if it was
working before 4/1/2001).
