Without the quotes.

 So yes, that is an illegal username, as far as RCS is concerned. I don't

We're using WinCVS 1.2 on Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP using
a mounted partition from the (used to be) NT server (now we are on
Windows 2000 Server).

Most of the user names are single names but one person has a login of
FirstName LastName (without the quotes) and cvs2svn barfed on that.

I'm going to try to get him to fix that but it is already in the CVS/RCS
files from a couple of years ago.

We might have been using a ALPHA or BETA version of WinCVS at that time,
I'm not sure.
