DSOLVE in 5.01 ??

The following sequnece worked fine in all Mathematica versions including 4.2

dgl1 =  m g  -  c v[t]^2 ==  m v'[t]
dgl2 = s'[t] == -v[t]
DSolve[{dgl1, dgl2, s[0] == h0,v[0] == 0}, {s[t], v[t]}, t]

But since 5.0 (and now in 5.01) there are only a error messages ? 
Whats wrong here, why can't 5.01  solve this thing when 4.2 can???
OTOH: DSolve without the boundary conditions works fine (DSolve[{dgl1,
dgl2}, {s[t], v[t]}, t]), and calculationg the Constants C[1], C[2] by
"hand" (i.e. with Solve) also...
Thanks for help
