CVSup was known to crash under fvwm or fvwm2 at one point.

The easy way around this is to use the non-gui mode and it will work fine.
I do this anyway as it's faster than drawing it under X all the time from
remote machines.  I typically use:

	cvsup -g -L2 some_supfile

-g gives you the non-gui mode
-L2 gives you the level 2 detail you see in the gui mode about who did 
    the update etc

You can of course start a script if you need/want to look back through it
all.
