For what it's worth, I always do my global updates like this:

 	cvs update -A > /var/tmp/pkgsrc.cvs.log &

and then when it's done (or while it's still running in another
window), do a /^[?CM] in "less /var/tmp/pkgsrc.cvs.log", to see what
needs to be promptly edited, or deleted. Notice that the line above
only saves standard output, as while the standard error provides a
nice progress report, there's nothing in there worth keeping.
