After Jody confirmed that CVS works on Windows I tried an experiment. CVS
works without 'HOME' if I run it from my C: drive. If I run it from an NT
network share, it fails.
I don't know if this is a bug or not. Sorry for not testing this on a
local drive earlier.
For the benefit of firstname.lastname@example.org I shall repeat the error message:
Here's the output without 'HOME' set, 'F:' is a network share from NT 4.0:
F:\cvs>cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/projects/cvsroot login
(Logging in to firstname.lastname@example.org)
