No compression - I'll see if I can get people to change that...

C:\builds\beagle.net>cvs version
Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.0rc5 (client/server)
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) (Build 72)

Could this do it?

Wierd... haven't seen anything like that for ages (it used to be quite
in the 1.10.8 days).

As a workaround you could kill them all overnight when the server is
It doesn't really fix it, though...

What compression (-z) settings are you using?  I wonder if switching it
to the
opposite of what you use now would change anything.
