You're almost certainly running out of temp space on the *server*, not
on the client.  The -T opion, like $TMPDIR, only applies to the local
CVS process.  I'm afraid the only thing you can do is change your
$CVS_SERVER to point to a script (on the server) that runs CVS with the
appropriate -T option.
