We have the same problem here with, and The problem is independent of the server OS (samba or 
Windows). There is a difference for client machines: WinXP 64bit has 
this problem with files greater than 32MByte, WinXP 32bit fails with 
files greater than 64MByte. The problem occurs on any cvs command 
(update, checkout, add+commit). There is no problem if the operation 
works on a local drive, only sandboxes on network shares have this 
problem. We tested this only with binary files.

Best regards
