cvs serverning error message

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

When using cvsnt and putty to do cvs over ssh on Windoze I get the
following warning message on checkout (though the checkout itself is

cvs -Q -z 9 co -P  zlib
' from cvs serverning: unrecognized response `
cvs checkout: warning: unrecognized response
"c:\Program Files\Putty\plink" -1 -l amarlow -i "c:\.ssh\identity" -l
' from cvs servervs server

This sets the exit status to error. My build script checks for a bad
exit status and if set assumes something terrible has gone wrong. So
this warning is causing a problem for me. For the time being I can
disable the check but it would be good if the reason for this warning
could be found. Has anyone else seen this? Any ideas what the cause is
