Description pribyl 2008-10-01 14:45:20 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200810010201)
Java: 1.6.0_10-rc; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 11.0-b15
System: Windows XP version 5.1 running on x86; Cp1250; cs_CZ (nb)

User is able to change CVS root to non-existing repository (there is no verification whether the repo really exists).
Moreover, when trying to commit or update after such change, the error obtained is: "The pipe has been ended", which 
does not make much sense imho :) 

I am not sure how complicated could be to include some sort of verification (or whether is even worth trying). Maybe it 
would be enough to change the error message to something like "specified CVS root does not exists".
