Which anoncvs server are you using? The HACKING file suggests using
anoncvs.gimp.org instead of anoncvs.gnome.org. If you use the latter,
you will get one of the GNOME anoncvs servers are random, and the one
in Spain is known to be badly out of sync. Using anoncvs.gimp.org
ensures that you always get the same anoncvs server.
Anyway, regardless of which one you are using, you should usually
expect a delay of about half a day.

Bonsai is supposed to be restored in the not-too-distant future. When
it works, it provides a richer set of functions than viewcvs. So
switching to viewcvs would only be a temporary solution. I don't know
if it is worth it. This depends very much on how long it will take
for tools like bonsai and lxr to be restored on cvs.gnome.org. I don't
have the answer to that question.
