I use cvs at the house.  I like the features in it over .14.  I left a 
keyboard attached to my box and taught the wife to hit a few keys to 
reboot the box should she run into any problems.  Over all, its working 
good though.  But, I don't know about the most recent cvs update.  I 
haven't upgraded yet.
