OK, so it accelerated madly and ate all the inodes again as soon as I wrote
that, so I've now killed the older half of your cvs server processes, and
removed all the /tmp/cvs-serv* no longer associated with an active process.
 That should still leave you with enough debris to work out what's wrong
with whatever you're doing.  Oh, I've left /tmp/cvs-serv31300 as well, in
case you need an example of one of the abandoned directories to understand
what's happened.

That should hold it for a few a day or so (we're back to 44% inodes used)

Cheers, Phil.
