I'm doing the same thing (keeping a CVS checkout in Coda), and seeing
similar errors (see the "CVS updates take down the client" thread).

What you are seeing now is slightly different from what I report in
that thread.  In my experience, the "file "", line 282"
assertion cannot be fixed by a simple restart.

You have to reinit the client, which will cost you the unintegrated
changes.  In my experience those changes have always been empty
directories created by the -d option to update, which should then be
removed by the -P option, and that's where the assert happens, I think.
