I did find out what problem was. Since I was using vim (or gvim) which
forked out a separate window, for some reason CVS assumed I had completed
typing the log message, even before I actually typed in anything. So now vim
does not fork out a separate process.

Not sure if this is a bug or not, but I am posting it in the cvs.bug group.
