If you could also attach the system information
(uname -a) output in addition to the backtrace
of the core dump, that would be much appreciated.

If you configured this version of CVS using anything
other than just './configure', it would also be good
to get a copy of the config.h file that was generated.

Also, please advise if the directory
contained an existing CVSROOT with CVSROOT/config
file before the init command was run.
