Hi Chris,

I have seen this too, but not consistently.  For me, the error occurs only
near the end of a very large checkout using a 'universe' defining module
name.  The error does not exhibit during smaller module checkouts, and as I
said - it does not consistently show up even during the large checkouts.

I'm curious what you see as the difference between 'in a buld script' and
'by hand'.

It's strange.  If I run the cvs operation from my Perl build script,
I get "Protocol error" torwards the end of the checkout.  If I execute
the same command, in the same directory from a shell prompt, the checkout
works fine.

I'm surprised more people aren't running into this problem.  I'm not doing
anything special and my repository is not that big.

Perhaps this is related to the size (I'm out of my element here) of the stack/space/threads (or whatever) available to the CVS exe that was launched inside the script? That may explain why you don't see the error from a direct command-line invocation. I don't know how to check for this though. FTR - my error shows up when invoked from a perl script as well, though not every time. hmmmmmmm...
