This is strange. This seems to happen only for anonymous checkouts.
With a login I can checkout the whole CVS with no problems.

  lsof | wc
shows that approx.
files are open during update and it is really nothing compared to 
  cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max

So, it seems to be a problem with cvs after all.

Any ideas? Does anyone know what are the differences between ordinary and
anonymous accounts for a cvs server?
