[cvsnt] CVS bug - memory allocation error

A commit should only be interested in the head revision so it's not too

We are aware of a couple of bugs with large files and also Unicode UCS-2
files on Windows. We have some patches with customers at the moment but
feedback is a little varied, I suspect it still needs more work.

The actual bug appears to be in the Microsoft C runtime library (malloc
etc), so only affects windows - not linux or unix.  However it affects
what Tony calls "Corner Cases" not the everyday stuff most users do.

But doesn't the size of the RCS file (600 Mb) factor into this? In my
experience when RCS files get above a few hundred Mb performance of
CVSNT drops considerably.
