Thank you Gabriel for your answer. The file is not yet on the
repository. I did a 'cvs add myfile' without problems.  The problem is
that I get that error (see subject) when I do a 'cvs ci -m "message"

I opened my file in xemacs and realized that it has 605 lines and 396
columns. Yes, it is a *very* wide file, but I can not modify this
file. In fact, once I commit this file I will not modify it, as this
is a test file.

The 232k is just an estimate of the file size, which in my opinion is
not too large. An 'ls -lh' command returns the following:

-rwxr-xr-x    1 gdelfino wheel        232k Apr 19 10:29 CBN3106_06.deb
