WinCVS 1.3b6 and Windows XP for Sourceforge

The problem is short: i can't log in as a project member.

I read almost every tutorial found on the web and newsgroups for WinCVS and
NT, but it looks as if WinXP causes problems.
I've everythnig set up normally, but the thing that make me wonder WinXP is
involved is that when the DOS windows opens (e.g. when i try to remove a
file), i get the error :

cvs remove: authorization failed: server rejected
access to /cvsroot/ewa for user mo-ize

cvs remove: used empty password; try "cvs login" with a real password

As you know, Sourceforge is using a SSH, which works with the RSA identity
file :

D:\Abc\.ssh>ssh -l mo-ize -i ./identity
Host '' added to the list of known hosts.

Connection to closed.

But when i launch a wincvs command, a DOS window opens :
It is an empty window, and its title is the path of cvs.exe
It stays open about one second, without showing anything inside. I don't
know what to do ...

Help if someone has already managed to make it work fine under win XP !

Thanks, Mo-Ize
