cvsup1, which has the same IP address as cvsup, /is/ listed as the server 
closest to me in the handbook. More specifically:

/usr/local/etc/cvsup/update.sh -L2
CVSup update begins at 2010-09-02 09:46:13
Updating from cvsup1.freebsd.org
Parsing supfile "/usr/local/etc/cvsup/supfile"
Connecting to cvsup1.freebsd.org
Connected to cvsup1.freebsd.org
Premature EOF from server
CVSup update ends at 2010-09-02 09:46:15

Something has changed in the past several days and I'm now getting 
Premature EOF. (I operate a mirror within our enterprise.) If the server 
/is fine/, then why have I been getting this message for the past several 
days? Nothing has changed on my end.
