If you are just checking out fred.cpp then no you wont need the whole
tree of space.

Try the following:
* enable "allow clients to trace server" in /etc/cvsnt/PServer on the
* check out the smallest thing you can find that produces the error with
a trace:
cvs -ttt co path/to/file/file.cpp

And look at the last few lines of the trace and that will hopefully
explain what is going wrong.
