cvs keeps a pointer to the cvs server in the files CVS/Root.  For example:

  % cat CVS/Root 

When you change  the location of the repository, if  you don't want to
check out new working copies,  you should update these CVS/Root files,
using a script like:

for file in `find . -name Root -print` ; do
ed $file <<'EOF'
exit 0

(Edit the line "s/@[-.A-Za-z0-9]*" 
to match your situation).
