CVS authorization error

I recently upgraded to Aurora and I'm very happy with the new functionality, etc.

However, I can't get the CVS plugin to work. I keep getting an "Authorization Error" with the message "Wrong password or unknown user."

I'm running on windows and our CVS server uses windows authentication. I have no problem authenticating using TortoiseCVS and I had no problems with IDEA 3.0.

Anyone have a clue?

UPDATE ::

my .cvspass (created by aurora) file looks like this....

:pserver:[my-login]@[cvs-server-name]:/[doc-root] A

if I remove the "A" at the end - then I don't get the error message anymore -

instead i get nothing at all

if i turn on the CVS output dialog - I can see some text pop-up quickly-then disappear - too quickly for me to see what it is.

after repeatedly trying to read the error message that comes up - it's

"Error : string index out of bounds : -1" (or something very similar)

that's probably because it's trying to read the "A"

argh!

Anyone know what the significance of the "A" is?

When using pserver protocol, passwords are kept scrambled in .cvspass file. "A" is a scrambled version of empty string. You may try to delete your .cvspass entirely and try to recreate your cvs repository settings from the IDEA.
