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 (
  -> Connecting to
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.
