The "cvs co" command, in particular, does not preserve spaces in filenames.
This bug is also present in CVS 1.11 under Cygwin 1.3.9.
Using one of many files in our repository with spaces in the name:
~ $ cvs co bringup/VMI/doc/Mobile\ List\ Utility.doc
CVS server: warning: new-born bringup/VMI/doc/Mobile has disappeared
CVS server: warning: new-born bringup/VMI/doc/List has disappeared
CVS server: warning: new-born bringup/VMI/doc/Utility.doc has disappeared
It seems obvious to me that some helper program has been invoked via
system() without the proper protection of arguments.
