When does the time get sync'ed on this server?  When it starts occurring
try syncing the time of both the client and the server to a known good
time source (/sbin/ntpdate pool.ntp.org).

Try running in :local: mode and doing an strace (on the server), ie:
strace cvsnt -tttt -d :local:/path/to/repo co module

You could also try switching systemauth off and seeing how that affects
