Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

Found that trying to update a sandbox with a changed file from
the repository that is 8170 (or so) bytes or larger fails, either
with cvs crashing, or the server returning the message
unexpected '\\xn' reading revision number in RCS file ...

Changing RCSBUF_BUFSIZE from (in rcs.c)
(8192) to (8192*16) seems to make the 8k test

To reproduce

create new text file >9k bytes long
add to repository
checkout into dir1 and dir2
change in dir2 directory and commit
try to update from dir1
