Protocol error message during checkout

I saw this mentioned in the archives on May 4, 2001 in a question posted
by Chris Sharpe.  He describes very similar exhibition of the symptom,
and goes on to speculate association with a FIXME in server.c for
1.11p1.  I didn't see any additional mention beyond that in the

Here are the particulars::

$cvs co xxxxxuniverse <Enter>
Protocol error: uncounted data discarded.


NT 4.0 SP5
cvs 1.10.8
running inside bash, version 2.04.0(1)-release-(i586-pc-cygwin)

Linux 2.2.14-5.0
cvs 1.10.7
cvspasswd usage (i.e. no user accounts)

Repository access is via a local network segment using DHCP.  The repo
box has an externally visible IP while the clients do not.  The repo box
can be pinged and ssh'ed.  Small (100 or so files) modules do not
display the symptom.   We're using cvswrappers for substitution mode and
a multi-module modules file.  The above error occurs only when checking
out a 'universe' describing module and is reproducible.

FYI - this error did not present itself yesterday.  No [known] CVS or
repository changes have been made.  Is this a pserver error message?
Has the 'universe' module simply grown to some statically "too large"
