Assertion Error

Hi folks,

I am trying to create an RPM but keep getting a CVs error when checking out and updating some files.

the error is

'cvs: buffer.c:1384: stdio_buffer_shutdown: Assertion 'fstat ( fileno (bc->fp), &s ) != -1' failed.' from cvs server
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above message if any)

I am not sure why this occurs.  I did find a bug reference that described this scenario but dont know if i have to upgrade my CVS or what.

any help would be gratefully appreciated.
