Problem with ruby-cvs library



connecting to my cvs repository via the ruby-cvs library doesn’t seem to
be working. I can connect to the example remote cvs server

c = CVS.create(’:pserver:removed_email_address@domain.invalid:/cvs/root’)
c.dir(’.’).listdir.each {|d| p d.path}
will find all files

However, when I try to access my own remote server, it just hangs

irb(main):009:0> c=CVS.create(’:ext:removed_email_address@domain.invalid:/repository/cvsroot’)
=> <CVS::R::smiley: :ext:removed_email_address@domain.invalid:/repository/cvsroot>
irb(main):010:0> c.dir(‘keyword-editor’).listdir.each {|d| p d.path}

and nothing happens. I can connect with cvs to my repository, but not
via the ruby cvs library.

Has anyone encountered this problem before?

thanks for any hints
