I re-enabled the local access viewcvs mode. Will see in a few days if we
locked up again. Remember that I'm still open to any suggestions to
investigate that. I wanted to get a python backtrace from the stalled
cgi processes, but it looks like no one even knows how to do that.

Good catch. apache runs as 'svn/svn', is a system user with no shell and
no home. If local access still wedges, I'll see what I can do with that
