Is the CVS repository accessed via ssh?  Are you running your cvs command
on a glibc (or MacOSX) machine?

This may be yet-another-instance of the cvs+ssh+libc bug which causes
some of the output of cvs to be lost sometimes.  It's known to occur
with glibc and with MacOSX's libc, but may also occur with others.

If you suspect you are suffering from this problem, please try to set
CVS_RSH to the following script:

   exec 2> >(exec cat >&2 2>/dev/null)
   exec ssh "$@"
