This happens to me too.

And a new problem popped up early this weekend (maybe Friday already):  when
I click the "Browse CVS Repository" link near the bottom right of


IE5 pops up a box asking me whether I really want to download file "cvsweb".
Useless!  This used to work fine, and I sure haven't changed my IE setup.
Clearing the browser caches didn't help.  The link resolves to
