This is either a hardware problem (e.g. defect RAM), or a bug in
your kernel. No user space process (like the CVS server) should
be able to crash the complete machine.

I would suggest to install a newer kernel version first. The most
recent one is, AFAIK. Building the kernel is also a
good test for defect memory.

If you still can reproduce the problem with the new kernel, then
I would suggest to ask this question on the Linux Kernel Mailing
List (http://lkml.org/).

Good luck
