This happens to us on our Windows 2000 Server using WinCVS as a client.

We have a 4 Gig CVS repository of some 3+ years of commits and many of
them have spaces in the user name. It would be nice if it accepted this,
even if it is not *supposed* to be that way in the RCS/CVS *,v files.

I have attempted to write a perl script which finds all the names with
spaces and takes the space out but I've not yet figured out how to do it
properly, though I could be close....I've just not had much time to work
on it lately.
