cvs does not execute if cvs bin directory in path statement is enclosed in quotes.

           Summary: cvs does not execute if cvs bin directory in path
                    statement is enclosed in quotes.
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.3
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: cshannon@abq.com


If the directory for the CVS executable in the dos PATH statement is enclosed 
in quotes (usually because it has spaces, which is legal syntax), the core 
task "cvs" will fail because it can't find the executable from the quoted 
path.  If the quote marks are removed, then it works fine.

For example, if your path looks like this:

    PATH=c:\winnt\system32;"c:\Program Files\WinCVS"

It will bomb.  But 

    PATH=c:\winnt\system32;c:\Program Files\WinCVS

will work fine.
