Thank you for getting back to me. It turns out the 'cvs' user's home
directory was not correct. It was trying to use a temp directory on a
share that was ... almost out of space. 

Go figure.

Here's what I just wrote to add to the manual:

cvs [command aborted]: out of memory
        There is insufficient (virtual) memory available to continue. In
        client/server mode, the problem is almost certainly on the
        server rather than the client; see Section 2.9.1 [Server
        requirements], page 20 for memory estimates. Many systems have
        limits on the amount of virtual memory that a single process can
        use, so a process can run out of virtual memory long before the
        system itself has run out. The method of increasing the
        per-process limits varies depending on the operating system.
