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