    CVS updates hang at least since early morning Jan/27 because the client is unable to get a read lock in /cvsroot/boost/boost/boost/mpl

    Here is the trace:
    ...boost/boost/mpl> cvs -t update
      -> main: Session ID is 8YEwaR98VI1NA7At
      -> main loop with CVSROOT=/cvsroot/boost
      -> open_connection_to_server (:pserver:anonymous@boost.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/boost)
      -> Connecting to boost.cvs.sourceforge.net(216.34.181.109):2401.
    cvs update: Updating .
    S-> rename(CVS/Entries.Backup,CVS/Entries)
    S-> unlink_file(CVS/Entries.Log)
    S-> Reader_Lock(/cvsroot/boost/boost/boost/mpl)
                                                            
    It hangs here until I kill it.
