It sounds like you're in the "pretty safe" zone -- you're using a file
server appliance for the NFS server and it sounds like you only have a
single NFS client accessing it (the CVS server).  The real "danger zone"
is having a heterogeneous environment with lots of NFS clients accessing
an NFS server on a general purpose platform.  If I were you, I'd still
run validate_repo on a regular basis, though.
