I've been wondering when we'll see the fix for that in a non-snapshot release.
I've been waiting for it since 1.5.19 came out (many months ago). Sure, I could
use a snapshot but I'd rather use something not in a state of flux. How hard
would it be to make a 1.5.19-5 with that fix? Judging from this mailing list I
am surprised that cvs server is the only application bitten by this bug.
