For many operations (I'm guessing that "import" is one of them),
the way CVS does them client/server is to make a temporary copy
of (the relevent parts of) the sandbox in /tmp on the server, and
then perform the operation locally on that copy.

I'd guess that the file system that's filling up is /tmp, NOT the
one containing the repo.
