my solution for problems with 13, were resolved using my /etc/hosts file.

[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~]$ cat /etc/hosts|grep cvsup
192.168.0.1 cvsup13.us.freebsd.org

... just make it time out.  i wonder if there is a mechanism in the 
fastest_cvsup to make it deliberatly exclude specific cvsup repositories.

on a side note... what was the file again to check in your sources, to tell 
you the version you have just downloaded?

cheers,
jonathan
