Hi guys,

I am testing moving a cvsnt server from linux to windows. The linux server 
was cvsnt2.5.02.2099 on redhat ES3 and the windows box is 
cvsnt2.5.03.2382. We have a particular module that is relatively big (1.7 
GB, 17574 files) and I get an error on checkout that says:

cvs [server aborted]: out of memory; can not reallocate 322961408 bytes

This happens on the windows server and not on the linux server. I've read 
about the RAM requirements and such that people run into, but the linux 
server has 4 gigs of ram and 8 gigs of swap and the windows server is a VM 
with 3.6 gigs of RAM and 7.5 Gigs of swap. Without assuming that the 
slight difference in RAM is the problem, can anyone else tell me what 
MIGHT be the problem?
