Hmm. WFM, WinXP:

max at pomello [~] $ mkdir -p /cygdrive/e/data/cvs
max at pomello [~] $ cvs -d/cygdrive/e/data/cvs init
max at pomello [~] $ cvs -d/cygdrive/e/data/cvs checkout CVSROOT
cvs checkout: Updating CVSROOT
U CVSROOT/checkoutlist
U CVSROOT/commitinfo
U CVSROOT/config
U CVSROOT/cvswrappers
U CVSROOT/editinfo
U CVSROOT/loginfo
U CVSROOT/modules
U CVSROOT/notify
U CVSROOT/rcsinfo
U CVSROOT/taginfo
U CVSROOT/verifymsg

Given the error messages, I guess you should check to see if init actually
produced a CVSROOT.
