Right :-)

I've never seen such a message. Is your repository file somehow
truncated (you can look at it, it's plain ascii)?

I think it's safe to say that it's not related to KDevelop. The
complete cvs functionality of KDevelop uses only the 'cvs' 
command line client, no direct manipulation of the repository
is done. So if the cvs server reports a problem, then either
cvs itself has a bug or the repository is corrupted by another
