I assume that in the client/server method inetd gets involved
on that path.  When you call cvs status separately for each filename,
your sudden flood of calls might exceed inetd's threshold for
a suspected denial of service attack, so inetd puts the service offline
for a while to protect the server from the perceived attack.
