huge download in cvs-regression.sgml

Dimi, I don't know if this page is one of the CVS bits you want to get 
rid of...

IMO we shouldn't be asking people to download 40M files just to trace a 
regression - much better just to use cvs.winehq.

On dialup, the download will take 2 1/2 hrs - it is hard to see a 
succession of little trips to cvs.winehq adding up to anything like 
that.  On broadband the situation is proportionally better, of course, 
but is the cvs server really so overloaded ?

Unless anyone objects, I'll submit a patch removing this suggestion to 
make a huge download.

	+ "wine-cvsdirs" should be "full-cvs"
	+ Unnecessary 'cd'
