[BUG] CVS-1.11.13 compression option -z does not work with commit and update
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
CVS Environment:
    version:    1.11.13    (both client and server)
    server:     pserver
    client:     (access pserver via network)

Both client and server have the same version and are compiled
with gcc-2.95.2 (with -O1, Linux kernel 2.2.25) on server side and
gcc-3.2.2 (with -O2, Linux kernel 2.4.20) on client side.

CVS seems to use its own version of zlib, i.e. in src/Makefile:

cvs_LDADD = ../diff/libdiff.a ../lib/libcvs.a ../zlib/libz.a

This is a long standing bug, it seems to work when using only a few
small files but not when updating or committing many files
(more than 4-5).

I have tried many combinations varying from -z 1 to -z 9,
but the error message is always the same,
here it is a trace (cvs -z 4 -t update):

-> main loop with CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden/home/cvsroot/mycvsdir
 -> Connecting to MyIP(MyIP)
 -> Sending file `Makefile' to server
 -> Sending file `Makefile.in' to server
 -> Sending file `config.log' to server
 -> Sending file `config.status' to server
 -> Sending file `libtool' to server
cvs [update aborted]: received broken pipe signal
 -> Lock_Cleanup()

If I don't use -z option everything works, but it is deadly slow
because all happens through a slow link (10 KB/sec.).

For me there is a huge difference between using or not using -z option
when committing or updating my cvs tree
(judging from cvs checkout times, it should be 2 minutes instead of 15-20 
minutes),
hence I really would like to see this bug fixed.

If you need more info, just ask.

    Regards.
