Re: after Cygwin update, CVS authorization fails

What you see (mangling) is a CR after john so the start of the follwing
line (probably "cvs server: au" is hidden on screen). Seems you have
checked out a text file under Windows (WinCVS) and now under Unix
(Cygwin) the CR is not recognized as end of file (instead of a checked
out file it could also be any file in the CVS subdirectories).
Essentially that means:

Use one sandbox for working under WinCVS and another one for Cygwin.

If this advice/solution does not please you... that is the result of the
thread with subject "WINCVS and MSVC problem" on this very list.
