I'm using:
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.12.13-devel (client/server)

$ /usr/local/bin/cvs -d /tmp/test init
Segmentation fault: 11 (core dumped)

I've tracked this down to an uninitialized variable getting passed to getdelim() and attached the relevant patch to this bug report.

This doesn't seem to happen to glibc platforms but other platforms are probably affected as well.
