According to the document:

`dying gasps from SERVER unexpected'
     There is a known bug in the server for CVS 1.9.18 and older which
     can cause this.  For me, this was reproducible if I used the `-t'
     global option.  It was fixed by Andy Piper's 14 Nov 1997 change to
     src/filesubr.c, if anyone is curious.  If you see the message, you
     probably can just retry the operation which failed, or if you have
     discovered information concerning its cause, please let us know as
     described in *Note BUGS::.

This problem is most likely happening using a client/server connection
where the server is getting output out of a .cshrc or .profile mixed in
with the messages being sent from the client and it is therefore getting
confused. This would likely only be for rsh or ssh connections. You may
want to see if some command like:

   rsh server date

returns more than the single line of the current date and time, or if
a command like:

   rsh server /usr/bin/true

returns any text at all.

For other suggestions, you will likely need to talk to one of the folks about the message (presuming that is the client
that is giving you the error message.

        Good luck,
