First, after some time, the server times out with
" Connection timed out."
The next line is
"cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages
if any)."

   BTW, I follow; CVS_RSH=ssh


cd /usr


cvs -z5 checkout -PA src

   But ah, I'm using bash (my aging human memory, you know)!  So
I do,

cvs -z5 checkout -PA src

and that's a no-go, with the server response,

ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above
messages if any)
