How big are those large .jar files, and how big are the .jar,v files for
those .jar files?
IIRC you can start having significant problems when:
1) the source or ,v file reaches file system (OS) size limits.
2) the source or ,v file reaches ~1/2 or ~1/3 the size of your server's temp
partition's limit.
3) the source or ,v file reaches ~1/2 the full Virtual Memory size of the
server, i.e, ~1/2 of real ram + swap space.

Bernd's question still stands, please let me expand it:
What OS is your server on?
What OS is your client on?
Are your running CVSNT in any of the locations?
Are you running CVS under Cygwin in any of the locations?
