File descriptor bug

I suppose I recently found a bug in cvs concerning file descriptors.
Consider the following example: You have about four cvs repositories,
all situated in 'projects/', e.g.

linux: #> cd projects
linux: #> ls
checkstyle      tkcvs   jdom    ojdbm

The first three repositories are accessible via anonymous login, but the
last (ojdbm) is accessed via ssh login. So if I try the following,
everything work properly:

linux: #> cd ojdbm
linux: #> cvs update
cvs server: Updating .
cvs server: Updating src

But if I run a 'cvs update' in the projects directory, cvs will fail
with a bad file descriptor

linux: #> cd ..
linux: #> cvs update
cvs server: Updating checkstyle
cvs server: Updating jdom
cvs server: Updating ojdbm
cvs server: updating ojdbm/src
cvs [update aborted]: Shutting down connection to
cvs.ojdbm.sourceforge.net: Bad file descriptor

I am using the latest stable cvs release. I hope this report helps you
to fix this bug.
