It has to be something local. However, I note that your version is VERY
old given we are talking about CVS versions and from memory, there was a
fair amount of instability in the CVS version early in the year. 

My advice would be to grab an updated CVS snapshot and re-build. the
problem may be due to a bug that has long since been fixed (though I
don't remember anything like that and I tend to update at least
weekly). When using CVS versions, you really want to stay fairly close
to the head.
