Best I can tell, Skip.

You don't want to fight me on that one <wink>.

I think I've lucked out too.

There are many links in the chain from one of our machines to CVS on
SourceForge.  My bet is that if it's working for you, it will continue to
work; and that we'll continue to see locks left behind by Skip until he
manages to replace the link in his chain that's damaged.  Also betting
there's a 50-50 chance we'll never know which link it was.
