As you have noted CVSNT is *very* disk intensive. All operations
involve a lot of disk writes and renames in order to protect the
integrity of the repository. If AV software interferes with these
writes then you will potentially have a situation where the system may
even corrupt files.
Since ,v files are not really prone to viruses the whole repository
tree should be excluded from AV scanning.
