Ok. Updated cvs now.

The new tarballs are fine, this problem is now gone.

But a correct pessimist, unfortunately! Now that the tarballs are fine, the
Abort is back!

Unfortunately my office machine (on the net) is an alpha with python 1.5, and
on my laptop I only have modem access. But Yahoo is fine, and if you want to
chance ssh over a modem, I'll give you an account on my laptop :).

Maybe this evening we could try something on yahoo? I live in Colorado
(Mountain time), and anything after 5 or 6 pm would be fine by me.
