The problems you're experiencing are almost certainly due to NFS bugs in
Linux and/or AIX which have now corrupted your repository, quite
possibly beyond repair.  This is why we always tell people to NEVER use
a remotely mounted repository, but to use client/server CVS instead. 
These sorts of NFS bugs are both prevalent and insidious, and they are
almost always interoperability problems that are nearly impossible to
get fixed because both parties will insist that the other must be at
