Are you sure the commits are actually happening?  CVS assumes that a
file is unchanged if it's timestamp hasn't changed -- it you make
changes too quickly, it may be that CVS misses them and the commit
doesn't actually do anything.  CVS has a built-in sleep which should
prevent that from happening, but it doesn't quite work on Windows
because the Windows filesystem timestamps have a two second granularity
rather than the one second that CVS assumes.
