First, the 'cvs release' command accepts a list of directories relative
to the current directory, not a <module_name>.

Second, I have seen something similar related to NFS operations on some
hosts where the directory being released was on an NFS mounted directory
and there were kernel messages like 

    'got bad cookie vp <hexstring> bp <hexstring>'

with the user seeing something like:

 % cvs release -d foo
 You have [0] altered files in this repository.
 Are you sure you want to release (and delete) directory `foo': yes
 cvs release: deletion of directory src failed: Directory not empty

but I have not actually seen the error you are reporting.

(Note: In the above case, the problem was apparently related to
which was a FreeBSD NFS client issue.)
