It probably works with about the same frequency as anonymous access - I 
think the problem is with the SF boxen and connection in general, and 
not with any type of user in specific.  I'm getting about 450ms RTT to 
cvs.sf.net, with about 45% packet loss.  I was able to do a complete 
update of my 2.4 tree earlier in the day, but it had failed 4 or 5 
times before that, so it's just hit or miss, I think.
