CVS eats memory and hangs on AIX 4.3

Hi all,

I am using a CVS server running on a AIX 4.3 box, and connecting to it using
a CVSNT client (embedded in WinCVS) from a NT box.

When I launch some CVSNT properitary commands (such as ls), the client
correctly shows :

cvs [ls aborted]: server does not support ls

But the server goes mad: It starts eating memory (upto the limit, 256 Megs)
and hangs.
If the user retries the command a few times, the full system memory is
quickly eaten...
The only way to solve the problem is to kill the Unix process (kill -9).

I have noticed this problem using CVS 1.11.4, 1.11.5 (compiled from sources)
or the CVS 1.11.4 binary downloaded from

Any ideas ?
