Unfortunately, that indicates that your repository has been corrupted. 
Are you using any kind of network file system (NFS, Samba, Windows File
Sharing, etc.) to access your repository?  If so, that's almost
certainly the problem -- use client/server CVS instead.  Unfortunately,
there isn't any simple way to fix the problem.  You'll either need to
restore the damaged files from a backup and then try to recreate any
subsequent changes or else you'll have to become intimately familiar
with the RCS file format and data archaeology and try to fix it by hand.

Since you have one corrupted file, it's likely that you have more; there
is a perl script that has been posted here a number of times that will
examine your entire repository and report any corrupted files -- I
suggest you find it and run it.
