Looks like the stat command is not included in Mac OS X.  I copied the
trouble file to my linux server (yellow dog linux) and ran the stat
command with the following results:

Pardon my ignorance, but can how can I tell cvs to open the file using
the O_LARGEFILE option?

The problem happens when trying to check in the file for the first

I would like to report that I have finally been able to upload my
file.  I used the windows version of cvs (1.10) instead of the unix
version.  Not exactly a solution, but I solved my problem.

My working directory is on a Windows 2000 machine wich I access via
SMB from my Mac OS X machine.  Instead of running cvs from my Mac, I
did it directly from the PC.

By the way, I have been unable to access for the last 2 or
3 days.
