CVS for Windows: Bug using diff?

 Salutations, info-cvs!

I am using CVS NT (Local Build 27) for maintaining source control over 
my local Windows-Development-files. I used only basic functionality so far 
(checkouts, commits and update). Today I had the problem to review an earlier 
version of a file. When I use "cvs -n diff -l -r 1.2 <file>" (with existing 
versions, no matter what file, no matter what revision) I get the following 

cvs [diff aborted]: (start_server internal error): unknown access method

I can, though, check out files with this revision and use WinDiff for comparing 
those files. But I thought that would be builtin-CVS functionality, and it 
works on my linux machines.

Is this a known bug? Am I doing something wrong?

Bye,                                            ...[ icq  #21392242 |
