Hi - we're using CVS server 1.11.5, and developers are using the latest
TortoiseCVS client.

One of our developers is always having the following problem, which looks to
be server-related:

When doing a CVS update, right as the client is about to download an updated
large binary file from the server (such as a static library), the CVS server
will spin at 100% CPU usage forever (untill the process is killed). The CVS
client just locks up as well -- apparently waiting for the server to start
sending data, which it never does.

Any ideas here? This always seems to happen when attempting to update binary
files. Text files work fine.

running cvs 1.11.5 on a FreeBSD Intel box.

If this is really a server problem, please submit a sanity.sh test case duplicating this problem with a stock CVS server. Please see the "server" set of tests in sanity.sh for an example of how to send arbitrary protocol commands to the server.

If you find you are having trouble duplicating the protocol commands for this problem for sanity.sh, try setting the CVS_SERVER_LOG environment variable with a stock CVS. Please see the manual if you need further detail on the CVS_SERVER_LOG environment variable.
