I've got a similar problem to the one reported on this list a month ago but
I didn't see a solution to it.  I haven't had luck running the process as an
Administrator instead of System like that person did.  Basically every cvs
command has about a 2:15 minute delay before there is a response.  I've got
"Don't resolve client names" checked and there is no anti-virus running.
This is on a brand new virtual server that we just configured.

Here is the output from cvs -ttt rls.  Note that after hitting enter it took
2:15 for the first log message to appear and then again another pause you
see in the log messages.  All other messages finished within 1 second.  Any
ideas what is causing this?  Thanks.
