What caused that where I work is that the main source tree, which
is a very large module, got close to the size of /tmp.  CVS builds
a source tree in /tmp, and if there wasn't enough room in /tmp
it didn't work.

What is the checked-out size of your largest module?  If it's
getting close to the 176M size of /tmp (which seems plausible,
given the 5.2G size of /cvs), you may just be running out of /tmp

What we did was to increase the size of /tmp and put in a cron job to
remove anything in /tmp that was over a couple of days old.  Since
your /tmp is only 6% full, it looks like you don't have the slow
filling-up problem we had, but you may need to enlarge /tmp.
