Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2354 Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2354 Final error message: cvs [server aborted]: out of memory; can not reallocate 335544320 bytes The directory where the file was added contains some small text files in addition to this large binary file. I have taken some interseting screenshots from TaskManager during the operations. The commit reserves a LOT of memory (1.4 Gb or thereabouts) and the log command tries the same but fails after a while without reaching that large memory usage. The screenshots are packed in a zipfile, which I attach for any interested party to look at. Bottom line: Not possible to log a large binary file using the build 2354 CVSNT.
