Re: CVS bug - invalid change text

Hi all,

some more info:

The project has about 20 tags and several branches.
The current CVS version of the corrupt file is Revision 1.88.

The CVS repository lies on a UNIX server
the checkout problems occurs locally on that machine and also
when I try a checkout remotely on NT.

We are using CVS for over five years now.

I did use the command line version CVS 1.11 (on UNIX)
and CVS 1.10 on NT.

It is obvious that the problem lies in the repository file
and it is obvious that the file got corrupted in a CVS commit process
(since the files in the repository are not changed directly).
After renaming this file in the repository the checkout process works,
but of course, this file is missing.

Please also note that I can checkout the current version of the project.

The repository file has a size of 460 KB, and it looks OK at first glance
(I cannot see an obvious error). It is a text file.

I need to repair the file in the repository since I do not want to loose
all previous versions of this file.
I also do not want to loose the possibility to checkout the
earlier versions of the project.

How can I find the offending lines in this file ?

Mit freundlichen Gruessen / With kind regards
