How do I change the CVS user in the login prompt?

We're running 1144, and ran into a problem last night where Idea was popping up a CVS login prompt with one of our colleague's login id's, but he'd left for the day.

So in order to try to reset the login, I set up new projects, modules, and even deleted the system and config directories. The CVS login prompt still popped up with his username. How do we change this?

We do a lot of pairing, switch machines often, etc, so this really makes life difficult for us.



Check the file ROOT in the CVS directories in your project. CVS remembers who checked it out.


Oh, this would apply to any CVS client.


Ok this makes a lot of sense. Thanks.
