Do you have binary files in the repository? What is the size of the
largest file in the repository (the one that gives this message?
There is a bug in the MS C run time that causes far more memory to be
used by CVS when there are very large (eg: >300Mb) revisions in an RCS
file. This is fixed in the next release (ie: not the current one), but
I am not convinced that this is your problem.

Try upgrading to 2.5.03.2382 and re-test and send as much info as you
can about the file being processed.
