When will 1.12.14 be released?
I mean, this bug is plaguing people for over 5 years already,
see http://www.cvsnt.org/pipermail/cvsnt/2002-October/003676.html
or http://osdir.com/ml/osaf.devel/2003-12/msg00028.html .
It's good that you have fixed the bug in the "nightly snapshots"
part of the downloads, but normal users cannot estimate the
reliability of these builds.

This appears to be a duplicate of bug #14840.
Fixed in the FEATURE branch and set to be a
part of 1.12.14 when it is released.

If you are unable to wait and unable to use a different
compression level, then you may wish to apply the patch
attached to #14840 to your 1.12.13 sources as a short-term

We've changed our CVS server from GNU CVS 1.11.21 to GNU CVS 1.12.13. Now committing changes with enabled compression (in SmartCVS) is impossible, because the CVS server does not respond. We've tried other GNU CVS versions and following are working: 1.11.14, 1.11.21, 1.12.9. It appears to be a problem with the zlib, which contains an incompatible change.
