Protocol error: uncounted data discarded

I just upgraded by Solaris (sparc) pserver to cvs 1.11.1p1 and from
a WinNT command line cvs 1.11 client, I sometimes get the following

   cvs -d $my_cvsroot -f -r -q -z3 checkout -r $my_tag $my_module
   Protocol error: uncounted data discarded

The module is about 3000 files in size and I've seen this a couple
of times when running the checkout command as part of a script.
Other modules checked out immediately after the failure work fine
and if I try to checkout this module again, it works fine.

I saw that there was a FIXME comment recently added by Derek in
server.c that might be related.  Anyone have any insight?  Is this
error related to 1.11.1p1 or is the timing just a coincidence
(I never saw this error with 1.11 pserver).
