If you look that error message up in the CVS manual, you'll see the
following -- note particularly the last two sentences:

        There is insufficient (virtual) memory available to continue. In
        client/server mode, the problem is almost certainly on the
        server rather than the client; see Server requirements for
        memory estimates. Many systems have limits on the amount of
        virtual memory that a single process can use, so a process can
        run out of virtual memory long before the system itself has run
        out. The method of increasing the per-process limits varies
        depending on the operating system.
