Signal 11 is SIGSEGV (segmentation violation) which is frequently caused
by running out of memory.  Are you sure the server is running CVS 1.10.8
and not some earlier version?  Versions prior to 1.10.8 read the entire
history file into memory at once, so that could explain the problem
(although CVS should have reported being out of memory rather than
crashing with a signal).  1.10.8 and later read the history file a chunk
at a time and only save the individual records you're interested in, so
they're much less likely to exhibit the problem, although it is still
possible.  How much virtual memory do you have available on the server?
