I think it will time out and exit the process eventually, so you would
have to restart the cvsup.  You could script that, but be careful as
noted below.

No, it is mostly a linear process.  Whatever is updated by the time you
disconnect will still be updated.  Then when you restart the cvsup, you
wont have to redo that part.  There is some overhead searching through
parts that don't need to be updated, so don't do it every 5minutes, but
its not huge overhead.
