I got this when running "cvs stat" against a folder that contains a large
number files, some of them binary.  I am running build 70 on client and

So far "cvs stat" has failed in two different ways:

1.  out of memory; can not allocate 4291627380 bytes
2.  mismatch in rcs file foo between deltas and deltatexts
   Funny thing is, the file isn't in the module I was doing "stat" on.
