    Post CVSNT migration locales

    I have migrated a CVSNT server from a windows XP machine to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and almost everything works.

    Some files that are transferred to the clients in a CVS checkout are not recognised as being under version control.

    I have tracked cause of the problem to being "locally" encoded file names containing the letters æøå, one example is bærbar_kvitterin.pdf, and I can see the CVSNT information for these files is broken on the server.

    The CVSNT information shows a filename with broken text encoding for the different pieces of revision information, for example
    filename HP_b<E6>rbar_kvittering.pdf;

    Can I somehow "fix" this under CVSNT, changing locale, converting filenames etc., or is the only solution to take the plunge and convert the repository to SVN?

    I have tried looking at the locale for the PServer configuration, but this does not affect how the CVSNT information is read.

    Looks like this problem is related to the client used, as a client change fixed the problems.
