connection problem with CVS via pserver and xinetd

I'm having a problem with my new CVS/WinCVS installation. I have CVS installed on my Linux server (RedHat 7) and WinCVS installed on a box
running Windows 2000 Professional.   On the Linux server, I have xinetd
configured to listen to port 2401 and pass requests to cvspserver. I am able to connect over the LAN with no problem, but after 8-10 commands(adding files and committing), I get the following error:

cvs [add aborted]: connect to failed: Connection timed out

After I get this, subsequent commands fail I cannot log in from WinCvs again, or telnet to the Linux box, or even browse to the internet from the Windows box. To resolve this, I have to stop the network and xinetd services and/or reboot Linux before I can get going again.

Seems like an issue with the volume of data I am pushing over the connection. I cannot get larger files to commit at all, while I can do several smaller files before it hangs.

At this point, I'm out of ideas on how to troubleshoot this. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
