We met the same problem while using CVS on linux and solaris in a large scale project.

We think that the reason  was the versions of cvs were different on LINUX and solaris.

A confirmation may be useful.

We recently have seen some weird behavior from our CVS (v. 1.11)
repository.  Here are the symptoms we are observing with our repository:

* Upon doing a checkout, some lines in our source files will be
truncated or have strange characters like '@' inserted or appended. One
example of what is happening repeatedly:

Before commit:
SessionDocument sessiond = new SessionDocument();
After commit and immediate checkout:
SessionDocument sessiond = new SessionDocu

It truncates it at the same place every time, and in this same source
file, it also inserts a '@' character in the same place every time.

* Upon trying 'cvs log' we'll get errors like "cvs [log aborted]: space
expected in /net/code/projects/mmrd/WEB-INF/source/,v" or "cvs
[log aborted]: newline expected in .....".

The only thing unusual about our CVS install is that our repository is
on an AIX v4 box while all development takes place on linux.  The
repository is reached via a mounted directory.

Any ideas at all?  We're all at our wits end over this one.
