Your shell is choking on the argument list. What shell are you using? Using that
shell interactively, go to the directory in question and run 'ls *', and you'll
see the same message. Try a different shell, if possible.

A better solution would be to reorganize your directories, and perhaps your
build system. Performance may be seriously degraded (depending on the
filesystem) when you have that many files in a directory, and those files most
likely shouldn't be managed under CVS to begin with.
