Might cvsup be one of them? If not you should definitely check it out,
it was specifically designed for the problems that you seem to run into.

The FreeBSD project (and KDE so I'm told) use it to distribute their
CVS trees, and it seems to function especially well under high load.

What's more, it is very easy to set up cvsup mirrors to distribute
the load.
