My xemacs is the running from the Cygwin (on Window-XP pltform)
Do you know where should I configure the CVSROOT variable ?

In the cygwin command line, before you start xemacs.
But, have all of your CVS operations been done using the cygwin cvs or have you used a cvs directly from windows in this sandbox?

The reason I ask is that AFAIK the CVSNT client and cygwin cvs client may (probably) do not interact well together in the same sandbox, AND the messages below look like you are sharing a sandbox.

running under windows, and not knowing how to set the CVSROOT for cygwin, makes me believe that you ARE mixing CVSNT and cygwin cvs... you really need to ask on the cvsnt lists about that, as they see this problem a lot more than we do:

I think I will wait until I see Arthur reply to this thread before I make any more comments.

which OS are you running on? (not sure that xemacs still means you are on Unix.) Are you running on both windows and Unix?

It looks like at some level (either the client or the server) you are running CVSNT, and may need to ask on their mailing lists.

Are you trying to share a sandbox between windows and Unix?
(I think that is generally a BAD idea.)
