Just to clear up some confusion, you aren't fetching from anoncvs; you
are fetching from the copy of anoncvs that is on the FTP server.

It looks like that copy was impacted by the rsync problem.  I've changed
the script that syncs the FTP server to use rsync -W, and hopefully that
will fix things for you.
