CVS checkouts hang

I few months ago I posted this question to but didn't get a response.  Other files are hanging now and the problem happens about once a week.  I'm going to set the CVS_CLIENT_LOG variable today, but wanted to know if there are other specific ways of troubleshooting CVS checkouts.







A few months ago CVS checkouts in Eclipse started to hang checking out the last binary file in a folder.  It didn't bother anyone much so it was ignored since the binary was in a thirdparty directory and was rarely checked out or updated.

The problem was when CVS checkouts from CruiseControl started failing on the same binary and as a result the build would fail.  After a lot troubleshooting, (no thanks to snotty tech support at Dell, who asked me what do you expect from an unsupported OS) I got the motherboard replaced and was happy to find the check outs fast without hangs.


Recently someone mentioned that the same file was hanging in Eclipse again,

I tried it from command line and it worked fine.  Then someone checked in a new 4MB binary and that hung from command line and Eclipse.


When I was troubleshooting this problem the first time I saw that an strace

revealed this: read(0,1 and then just sat there until it timed out.


Does anyone have any thoughts on this issue?
