I wouldn't expect any Cygwin programs to invoke the "16 bit MS-DOS
Subsystem". Please run "cygcheck -s" at the same command prompt as you are
running cvs from. If none of that rings a bell for you, post it to the
list and maybe someone (probably not me) can spot your problem. The output
from "which -a cvs" might also be interesting.
