It is a bug in the SuSE package. I got mails from  several people who had
exactly this problem. You can try to get SuSE to fix it, or you could
compile the latest stable cvs yourself. I got a nice commandline to that by
Wolfram Schlich:

$ cd /tmp
$ wget
$ tar -xjvf cvs-1.11.17.tar.bz2
$ cd cvs-1.11.17
$ ./configure \
        --prefix=/usr/local \
        --infodir=/usr/local/share/info \
        --mandir=/usr/local/share/man \
$ make
$ su -c "make install"
