It is strange that VC should try to run vc-cvs-parse-entry when
loaddefs.el is saved, as you say.  That should only happen if
loaddefs.el was under CVS control, which it isn't.  Wasn't it taken out
of CVS just recently?  Could it be that some people still have it in
their CVS/Entries?

Does it really happen as you say?  Can you provide a stack trace?
