thanks for the hint.

We are fixed to SuSE/Novell distributions at the server as well as at the 
clients. I.e. we have CVS (not CVSNT) and cannot install a patched server. 
Maybe I can escalate the problem and get it thru.

Is there a way to get a script running in update/checkout? The program options 
in the moudles file work only, if a module is checked out, but not for an 
update, when single (modified) files are fetched from the repository.
