For what it's worth, in the years that I've been using CVS, I only
remember two bugs that could cause loss of data -- the -t/-f wrappers
bug (which is why -t/-f wrappers were disabled) and the tag locking bug
(which was quickly worked around and eventually fixed).

In that case, my guess is that 1.10 was built without client/server
support, probably because the older configure script couldn't find
something it needed whereas the newer configure script in 1.11 did find
everything.  If you still have the source directories, it might be
informative to compare the generated config.h files.
