The cvs command in MozillaBuild 1.5.1 is version 1.11.
Please upgrade it to the latest version, CVS 1.12.13.

I attached cvs.exe of CVS 1.12.13 and dependent DLLs to
bug 589111.  See bug 589111 comment 12 if you want to
download them yourself.

I can do the work if you tell me how to check out the
MozillaBuild sources.
hg clone <dest>

Wan-Teh, if you could test that the CVS in the build at meets your needs it would be appreciated.

Ok, thanks for taking a look.  I'll dig in and see what's going wrong.

Unfortunately I'm going to bump the CVS upgrade from this release so that I can get a modern mercurial version to people.  I'll revisit this for 1.7.

NSS/NSPR live on hg these days. While I don't intend to remove CVS from MozillaBuild (yet), is there any reason to update it at this point?

We can mark this bug WONTFIX.

I don't need to use CVS from MozillaBuild right now because the NSPR and
NSS source code has migrated to Mercurial.

I just tested the CVS (still at version 1.11) from MozillaBuild 1.9.0.
I can still check out old NSPR and NSS source code from CVS without any
