  I'd also suggest checking if there are any cvsadmin-style scripts running.
This kind of error can be caused if a script writes any text to stdout; the
text ends up in the comms stream between server and client and gets
misinterpreted as mangled compresed data.  You might be able to tell if this
is happening by running tcpdump or some similar network sniffer and taking a
look at the packet contents; if you see some obvious ascii text in there, it
should point you in the right direction.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
