There has been the odd report of something like this.  It's not common
and doesn't appear to be a flaw in cvsnt.

The only cause I've ever found of this is a rogue antivirus program messing around

with the behaviour of the windows socket library.  It might not be
Antivirus, though - I've not let AOL near any machines for a couple of
years but their system used to do similar nastiness.
