That's because the history command is so baroque that no one really
understands how it works, not even (I suspect) the person who wrote it.
What you actually asked for is commits made *by you* (the default, you
have to specify -a to get all users), to the module "gfdtsadm" *or* the
file "request".  If you just want the file "request" in the module
"gfdtsadm", the command you want is (I think): 

        cvs history -ac gfdtsadm/request

-p asks for records where the "repos" field *starts* with the specified
string.  -m asks for a module history report, -n specifies a module name
for other kinds of reports, but it looks to me like neither one is
completely implemented.
