This is a bug in most, if not all, versions of the Microsoft C Library:
the C Standard clearly requires the space, not a zero.

There is code in the most recent release of CVS (1.11.1p1) to work
around this problem and I know the same changes have been made to
WinCVS, but I don't know whether they've been released or not.  I
suggest you upgrade both to the most recent releases available.
