I have tracked the problem down to CVS is hanging in buffer.c
while waiting for the child process.

That child process happens to be SSH, which is running a
command "cvs server", presumably on the remote site.

Therefore it is out of scope.  The problem is on the CVS
server, or potentially in SSH.  Or Windows 98 etc etc.
