You are right. From the CVSHome web pages:

NB: cvs 1.11 is only a week old! Was it necessary to change
the server version?


It sure would have been nice if the CVS folks had thought a
moment and produced a message as to the likely cause of such
highly anticipatable behavior. And versioned the client/server
protocol in such a way that the client would have been able to

  "Warning: the server has been updated.
   You may see anomalous behavior."

I hope you-all don't do that :-(.
