I'm seeing stuff like this too, and it is unrelated to ssh. The problem
is that cvs download temp files into temp files named .new.%9 and the
9th character of that name is a dot. It appears that most windows file
systems don't allow trailing dots, apparently because of "8.3 filename"
It appears that cygwin 1.5 munged off the dot, or defined
_POSIX_NO_TRUNC. And now with 1.7 that has changed.

So I ran the "cvs -t update" command on the file in question. Doesn't
tell me anything, but here is the output.
-> main: Session ID is NrLenMDBO35CD1tu
-> main loop with CVSROOT=/usr/gapps/AEAG/cvs_modules
-> open_connection_to_server (:ext:hera:/usr/gapps/AEAG/cvs_modules)
-> Starting server: ssh hera cvs server
cvs update: warning: p_change.pl was lost
S-> RCS_Checkout (usr/gapps/AEAG/cvs_modules/Utilities/p_change.pl,v,
1.5, , , (function))
S-> server_register(p_change.pl, 1.5, , , , , )
S-> Register(p_change.pl, 1.5, , , )
cvs update: cannot write ./p_change.pl: No such file of directory
-> close_connection_to_server ()
I also tried using the -vvv option on ssh, but got the following error
when I set CVS_RSH to that:
cvs [update aborted]: cannot exec ssh -vvv: No such file or directory
