If it IS an NFS netapp, then one sub question to ask is CAN any

Turns out the repo is on a SAN, but only the CVS server has that
particular directory mounted read-write and I'm assured that SAN
storage looks much more like a local disk to the OS than NFS and that
I should trust it.  Has anyone had any problems with repos on SANs?

I also got a copy of the archive prior to the second 1.4 commit.  Sure
enough, it had a header with "head: 1.3", no 1.4 metadata, but had a
1.4 change text.  All 3.5 original revisions were created on the same
day, so I can't pull anything older from storage.  :(

Checking out revision 1.2 in the raw retrieved archive produced an
error, but I reconstructed and repeated the four commits without
reproducing the corruption, which didn't surprise me.

Attempting to commit a second 1.4 revision to the retrieved archive
with CVS does produce the corrupted file I originally received, with
two 1.4 change texts, but now I need to explain the original
corruption.  Has anyone seen anything like the corruption in the
retrieved archive?

Backup just a second here...
Are you telling us you have a way to get CVS to create the corruption?
Got a script to do it? Mind sharing?
