Very interesting.

You're hanging on crerepos-6a, which is a very strange test.  It tries
to a checkout with CVSROOT set to ../crerepos, which CVS interprets
(strangely enough) as :ext:..:/crerepos and thus ends up doing:

        rsh .. cvs server

even though it's a *local* test, not a remote one.  This apparently
prompts any number of different error messages from various rsh
implementations, but on yours it apparently does *not* produce any error
message, but just quietly starts reading from stdin instead.  What
happens if you type "rsh .."?

I'm thinking that for this test we should probably set CVS_RSH to
something innocuous like "false".  In the meantime, feel free to comment
out that particular test so that you can finish running the test suite.
