Oy! You caught me. I am not the admin of the cvs server and I assumed
*cough* that it was a Windows box. After reading your response, I decided to
check my facts... it's a Solaris box. We use Windows server at my
installation but the cvs box is elsewhere. They use Suns there.

I don't know how large the entire repository is, but my module is just under
1G.  Is this large?

I have the latest rev of CVSNT.

With this said, you will likely get better answers on the cvsnt mailing

Between it working and now not working, have you updated to a newer cvsnt?
The only similar experience I have ever had with regular cvs is when at
1.11.1p1->1.11.2 they changed to memmaping files and my solaris box had a
broken memmap implementation, and then it only happened on the biggest of
repositories with them machine under load.
