F.3 Other common problems
Here is a list of problems which do not fit into the
above categories. They are in no particular order.
On Windows, if there is a 30 second or so delay when
you run a CVS command, it may mean that you have
your home directory set to `C:/', for example (see
All environment variables which affect CVS). CVS expects the home
directory to not end in a slash, for example `C:'
If you are running CVS 1.9.18 or older, and
cvs update finds a conflict and tries to
merge, as described in Conflicts example, but
doesn't tell you there were conflicts, then you may
have an old version of RCS. The easiest solution
probably is to upgrade to a current version of
CVS, which does not rely on external RCS
