The problem here is that there was a file corruption on this directory.
We're restoring it from CVS, but it may take some time.

This affects people who try to do either a cvs co or a cvs update on the
libwww base. 

If you already have the base, you can avoid this problem by changing to
the directory you're interested in (e.g. libwww/Library/src) and making
your cvs update there.

I'll mail the list when the situation is back to normal. Give it a try
later on as I'm away from office next week and I may not be able to
send the mail ASAP.
