Not sure if its relevant or not, but the INSTALL file for CVS emacs has
the following note -

,----
| Note on using SSH to access the CVS repository from inside Emacs
| ----------------------------------------------------------------
| 
| Write access to the CVS repository requires using SSH v2.
| 
| If you execute cvs commands inside Emacs, specifically if you use
| pcl-cvs, output from CVS may be lost due to a problem in the
| interface between ssh, cvs, and libc.  Corrupted checkins are
| also known to have happened.
| 
| To fix the problem, save the following script into a file, make it
| executable, and set CVS_RSH to the file name of the script:
| 
| #!/bin/bash
| exec 2> >(exec cat >&2 2>/dev/null)
| exec ssh "$@"
| 
| This may be combined with the following entry in ~/.ssh/config to
| simplify accessing the CVS repository:
| 
| Host subversions.gnu.org
|      Protocol 2
|      ForwardX11 no
|      User YOUR_USERID
