Wild guess:  Maybe CVS thinks that those particular files are
CVS-managed.  It might be a problem with the sandbox on the
remote machine, not with client/server operation per se.  Try:
  - checking whether include/config/CVS has its own CVS
    subdirectory, i.e. whether there's a directory
    include/config/CVS/CVS [sic], whose Entries file contains
    entries for Root, Repository, and Entries

  - checking out a fresh sandbox -- still client/server, on the
    same remote machine -- and seeing whether the new sandbox has
    the problem too
