Could have been a temporary glitch, or something with your firewall -- I
just executed this command with no problems (except that I changed
/cvs/src to /cvs/cygwin-apps, of course, and used
instead of, but neither of those should matter).

Not that I know of...  Can you "telnet 2401"?  I've also
found that the -z flag didn't work for me on occasion -- did you try an
uncompressed checkout?

If all else fails, you can always try browsing CVS via the ViewCVS page...
But that isn't very useful for getting a buildable source...
