Has there been any update on this?  I made the mistake of upgrading
one of my servers and one of my build machines to 1.11.1p1
and now I get this whenever I try a build using a build script:

 /usr/bin/cvs -q co -r build-1266 tree3
Protocol error: uncounted data discarded

The client is a Linux RH 6.0 2.2.17 box.
The server is a Linux RH 6.2 2.2.14-5.0smp box.

Doing the same thing by hand seems to always work.
