Yeah, i actually implemented it with cron jobs. 

I tried to find out how come, without much success. Anyway, i didnt
want to spend too much time on this. 

The cron does the job.

Thanks for your answers tho.

Hmm.  Yes, you're correct.  Excuse me for my off the cuff answer, but 
CVS appears to wait for its child processes in client/server mode.

As a workaround, you could use your script to queue the run and have a 
cronjob check the queue once a minute and lauch the real job.

I'm not sure how CVS is tracking its children, but you might try having 
you script daemonize too (close stdin, stdout, and stderr) and see if 
that lets it escape notice.
