This sounds like it couldn't find the source of the branch, but I don't
understand CVS or cvs2svn.py well enough to know what that means.

This looks like a corrupted RCS file. If I understand the exception
properly it means that rcsparse expected a semicolon, but found "access"
instead. Look in the file it was processing to see if you can figure
out what was going on. If you can't figure it out and you can post it,
Karl might be interested. (If it's huge it would be better if you
provided a URL from which it could be downloaded.)

Otherwise just upgrade cvs2svn.py since there were a few changes since

In particular, the log message for r6455 says:
Sanity check inspired by issues #1407 and #1355: tolerate invalid ,v
files better, as they're (apparently) legion...

* tools/cvs2svn/cvs2svn.py
  (visit_file): Catch exception from RCS parser, issue warning.
