Yes, bug #256921.
I Cc: the bug and I think we should continue the discussion there.

I don't think the "received broken pipe signal" is the cause of the
problem but the consequence.
"cscvs cache -b" is, in fact, executing "cvs -q rlog 'pcsc-perl'"
(pcsc-perl is the name of my CVS project).
I can have a "broken pipe signal" very easily. For example:
$ cvs -q rlog pcsc-perl | head
RCS file: /imports/acer/home/CVS/pcsc-perl/LICENCE,v
cvs [rlog aborted]: received broken pipe signal
I imagine head(1) closed the pipe after 10 lines and cvs(1) then aborted
with an error message.

strace(1) is fine for that. Even if a --verbose would be better.
