This isn't enough information for me to diagnose this problem properly.
Could you set CVS_CLIENT_LOG to some absolute path and filename (for
example, '/tmp/cvslog', and don't forget to export CVS_CLIENT_LOG if
your shell requires it), rerun the offending CVS command, this time
specifying '-t' (trace), and post the result of the 'cvs -t edit
filename' command, the result of 'cvs version' (or, second best, 'cvs
-v' since the version command is relatively new), the result of 'uname
-a' (and/or a description of your system), and the contents of both log
files (in the example, '/tmp/' and '/tmp/cvslog.out') to
address@hidden ?
