Hi. I'm a new CVS user. I'm running the binary release 1.11.2 on a
Win 2K system. When I try to do a commit, I get the following error:

        >cvs commit -R dump
        cvs [commit aborted]: your apparent username (sjb) is unknown to
                this system

However, "sjb" is my correct username; i.e., the name I am logged in
Can anyone tell me how to tell CVS that the name is OK? Thanks.

I think the executable available on wasn't compiled with CVS_BADROOT properly undef'd re: <>. CVS_BADROOT is undefined correctly in windows-NT/options.h, so I'm guessing that somehow src/options.h got used instead when the executable was compiled. I don't know if that goes for the older executables or just Tim Buck's 1.11.2 contribution, but if anyone would like to resubmit a new properly compiled executable to <address@hidden> and any patches to the MSVC/C++ project files to <address@hidden>, I'll see about getting both of those where they belong.
