I'm clueless at this point.  Just out of curiosity, does it make any
difference if you run the command in the directory containing the file
rather than using a path name in the command?  That is:

        cd VarioSam/Applicat/Src
        cvs update -rVERSION15 Iologger.cpp

Guess what, it worked a lot better. And also the val-tags file was updated
after this command. Then I went back to N:\Temp\vs\VarioSam, so still
inside the module, this also worked. But going back one step to
N:\Temp\vs and specifying full module path (VarioSam is the module)
it failed again.

This is the working trace. The non-working is same as above.
N:\Temp\vs\VarioSam\Applicat\Src>cvs -t update -rVERSION15 Iologger.cpp
-> main loop with CVSROOT=n:\temp\variosam
-> rename(Iologger.cpp,CVS/,,Iologger.cpp)
-> checkout (n:\temp\variosam/VarioSam/Applicat/Src/Iologger.cpp,v, 1.7, , Iologger.cpp)
-> chmod(Iologger.cpp,100666)
-> Register(Iologger.cpp, 1.7, Thu Dec 19 15:55:19 2002, , VERSION15 )
-> fopen(n:\temp\variosam/CVSROOT/history,a)
U Iologger.cpp
-> unlink_file_dir(CVS/,,Iologger.cpp)
-> rename(CVS/Entries.Backup,CVS/Entries)
-> unlink(CVS/Entries.Log)

The CVSROOT _was_ set with forward slashes, cvs itself changed them to
backslashes again. If I issued the command outside the module and chose
a tag already existing in the val-tags file it worked and there was a further
line in the trace before the others:
-> main loop with CVSROOT=:local:n:/temp/variosam

Any ideas for further checks?
Thanks so far

I don't take it personally :) Like Calvin anyway.
