Yup, cvs 1.11.x has this problem both of those releases:

It is fixed in cvs (will be in cvs 1.11.18) with this patch:

| 2004-09-08  Mark D. Baushke  <address@hidden>
|       * (join7): Fix if-then-else conditional.
|       * server.c (server_updated): Deal with cvs -n update -jt1 -jt2
|       "protocol error: uncounted data discarded" problem.
|       * (join7): New test for this case.

The patch needs to be applied to the server, but you may wish to
consider upgrading your client in any case.

A suggestion: Post questions to this forum from your home e-mail account
and then submit a bill for services rendered to compensate you for needing
to work at home to support the tools of Mizuho Securities... or don't if
you think it would lead to a hostile work environment.

        Good luck,
