Such errors have been fixed in the past and may be available in a newer
version of cvs than you have at present. Use the command:

   cvs version

to get the version numbers of the client and server you are using. If
either of them is less than cvs 1.11.17 for the stable release (or cvs
1.12.9 if you are using the development feature branch), then upgrade
and report the problem again if it persists.

In the general case, you should also tell us the operating system you
are using and the transport method (:ext: over ssh, :pserver:,
:gserver:, or whatever you happen to be using).

The above disclaimer is silly and makes your company (and you) look
foolish when you send such messages to an open mailing list that will
keep copies of your message in many different separate archive

If you can't stop sending such attachments due to corporate policy, I
suggest you get an e-mail account that is not as restricted and use that
to post questions in the future as many folks will just ignore such

(I'll probably ignore any future message from you that still retains the
disclaimer myself...)

        Good luck,
