Is your CVS repository on an NFS-mounted filesystem?  If so, that's
almost certainly the root cause of your problem: we've had lots of
reports of repository corruption caused by NFS interoperability
problems.  The symtom is typically truncation or a block of NUL bytes in
the middle of the file.  If you do have your CVS repository on an NFS-
mounted file system, I suggest you immediately move it to a local
filesystem (or move your CVS server to the NFS server machine) and run
the contrib/check_cvs perl script to check for any other corruption.
