Those would be server processes that are waiting for input from clients
that have disappeared without cleanly disconnecting (which would have
caused the server to shut down).  So, it would appear that you are using
defective clients (or misusing correct clients).  CVS tries to use the
SO_KEEPALIVE socket option to detect such disappearing clients, so it
would appear that your system doesn't have that option, it doesn't work
correctly, or it waits way too long before declaring the connection
