with (CVS) 1.11.16 client, (CVS) 1.11.17 server
the following command works for me. -l "-d \"2004-08-09 < 2004-10-09\""
I think your "'"s are getting eaten by the first shell.

the other problem might be with CVS 1.12.10, I thought they changed some of
the date handling routines, but even so I thought the changes involved the
output, not input and the input should still accept ISO8601 dates.
