As Larry pointed out this message comes from the server.  Aside from the 
possibilities that Larry mentioned - are you running CVSNT server on Windows 
by any chance?  There is a "bug" in the Microsoft C runtime library 
implementation of malloc() and realloc() that causes this error to 
(incorrectly) occur when a block of memory is reallocated many times (as is 
the case with files over about 500MB).

If you are using CVSNT server on Windows please contact the CVSNT newsgroup:

We've given our commercial support customers a few different patches to try 
and resolve this and at least one of them has proven to work quite well.
