Either your repository is on a network drive and the network file system
is unreliable, the hard drive containing the repository is going bad, or
the connection to the hard drive containg the repository is unreliable.

Whichever is the case, you have a serious problem that may corrupt your
entire repository, if it hasn't already.  I strongly suggest running the
validate_repo (for CVS 1.12) or check_cvs (for cvs 1.11) script from the
contrib directory to check the repository for corruption after fixing
the problem.
