Nope, our cvs is fine. YOUR cvs client, on the other hand, is botched - it's
an old version with a bug in it (our cvs server is a recent version). If you
don't use -z (compression), the bug isn't triggered. Also, timing/timing.h is
the last file - this bug is triggered only at the very end, so you've actually
successfully checked everything out. It's ok to just kill the client at that
point (but preferable to update the cvs client or not use -z)

Sensible enough suggestion. Thanks.
