I am using WinCVS 1.2 and the crazy thing is that this file is not ever
going away :)
If I re-try the action, the second attempt works fine. Has anyone
experienced this when using WinCVS 1.2?
The error seems to occur on almost any cvs action- create a branch, tag,
edit.... The first attempt gets the CVS/Root no such file error, the second
attempt works fine...and the file never is removed.
