If the server is on windows then it's probably just the bug in the MS C runtime. We have a workaround available to customers that mostly works (but it's a workaround, we can't fix microsoft's code). The intention is to merge this fix and others into 2.5.05 once 2.5.04 is finailly released as stable - but all that is cold comfort if this is preventing checkouts today.
Is migrating to CVSNT on linux is a workable solution?
