Re: Outstanding sparc issues for etch

I just pulled in #402745

cvs Terminated with fatal signal 10

I have CVS configured to work with ssh as an external autentication
mecanism. I just passed cvs from stable (sarge) to testing and I'm
getting this error. When I try to update a repository remotly I get this:

$ cvs -q up
? javascript/prueba.html
? javascript/windowCargo.js
Terminated with fatal signal 10
