This isn't cvs.  This is inetd.  inetd has built in detection
to prevent machine overloading that can be caused by a large
number of connections coming in at a single time.

You have two choices:

1)  Fix the scripts that cause this to be triggered to not
start so many remote cvs processes.

2)  Play with the inetd config file to allow through more connections
at one time.
