Not in 2.5.03 (I believe it's been added in 2.5.04) but you should be
able to find it using the date/time of the temp directory versus the
timestamps on the SessionLog records.

For some time I've been considering adding an option to enable an 'idle'
thread which monitors the main thread and if it looks 'bad' (eg: idle
for too long or busy for too long) then it could terminate it, but your
option sounds quicker to implement...

I've no idea why the cvsservice would not start again after you kill the
runaway process though -- it could be that some other process is
grabbing or blocking the port...  Any chance of the next time this
happens you try starting the cvsservice in debug mode 'cvsservice -test'
I think...
