cvs up slowdown

I noticed that, starting sometime earlier this summer, cvs up has
become almost unusably slow.

It used to just grab the updates from the server.  Now it appears to
be sending the entire current checkout (not the file version strings,
but the *entire* *files*) to the server before grabbing anything back.

In other words, cvs has gone from usable on just about any net
connection to virtually useless across a modem or DS0-comparable
wireless link.

My box runs gentoo; cvs is 1.12.12 built via 1.12.12-r4.ebuild.

And all of my cvs checkouts are read-only and do not have any local

>From a read of the src, it looks like is is supposed to do that only
for locally-modified files.  I cannot see why it should think the
files were modified, though....

Any ideas are welcome.
