That means that your repository has been corrupted.  Donald Sharp posted
a perl script a while back that checks a repository for corruption; I
suggest you get it and run it:


Repository corruption is almost always caused by bugs in network
filesystem code -- if you're using some kind of network filesystem to
access your repository (NFS, Samba, etc.), I strongly suggest that you
immediately switch to client/server CVS with the repository locally
mounted on the server machine.  Unfortunately, there's no easy way to
fix your corrupted files; you'll either have to live with them, try to
recreate them, or become intimately familiar with the RCS file format
and try to repair them by hand.
