I noticed that one of the swap partitions was offline.  Apparently
since the move to the new storage array a couple of weeks ago.  Fixed
that and added it back online bringing vcs from 6 gig to 12 gig of
virtual memory available.

Apparently cvs needs more than 6 gig of space to work on that file!
Because 6 wasn't enough but 12 now is enough.  I could check out that
file.  I will trigger the web page to try an update.  I expect it will
update now.
