Yes. We don't use client-server for now.

The filesystem is only running filesystem stuff, nothing else. I need to check with my network admin if we're allowed to run a CVS daemon on the file server itself. What if I picked a server closer to the fileserver instead?

we've had lots of reports of that kind of corruption caused by
interoperability bugs in network filesystems.

Wouldn't all our files be corrupted? What makes CVS (in non client-server mode) so sensitive?

 If that's not the case,
I'd say your system has bugs in its implementation of append-mode files.

How can I identify if the problem lies with CVS or with filesystem interoperability?
