I'm running the cvsnt client on Windows XP 32-bit and I issue the command
below and get the following error:

C:\IT\work\distro_test>cvs rtag TestTagRadix RadixSDK
Script execution failed
Script execution failed
Script execution failed
cvs rtag: Tagging RadixSDK
cvs [rtag aborted]: could not open lock file
`/Rocket/RadixSDK/,.cvsignore,': Too many open files

Why am I getting the "Too many open files" error?
