Yes the file is a binary. the size if the file is 5700KB and as stated earlier the repository for the file is 576691KB.
Isn't my current version of CVSNT newer then the one you suggest? 22.214.171.1246 vs 2.5.03.2382.
I have to be careful as my company is in the midst of a big release. so changing the CVS version may not be advisable right away.
Thanks for the quick reply.

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.
