Jeremy -

Few months ago, we had submitted a patch that made it into 1.11.21 . The patch ensured fsync was called to make disk changes permanent. Prior to that we would
see commit wiped out when the kernel panicked or machine rebooted.  You may
want to try this with a 1.11.21+ server build.

We're running CVS client 1.11.17 from a Windows XP machine, I downloaded the
binary a while ago, possible from WinCVS or Cygwin, but I'm not sure. Our
CVS server is running FreeBSD 5.4 and we connect to it via ssh (our CVSROOT
looks like :ext:x@y:/cvsroot).

What version of CVS is running on the server?

after about 90 iterations the diff will fail. In every case, a single
character in one of the files is modified by turning ON the second bit. In
other words the hex value of the character is increased by 2.

That sounds suspiciously like either a memory problem or a disk
interface problem on the server.  Does the server have parity or ECC
memory?  How is the repository disk attached -- SCSI, EIDE, SATA, etc.?
