I wanted to make sure you checked in any edits you made to the config files.
i.e., does 
less /usr/local/cvsroot/CVSROOT/config
show the file containing what you expect?

Should not matter from a CVS perspective (even for the problem you are
having), though the non-CVS commands I suggest you issue are generally
expected to be done on the Unix host you are using as a server. ... Let me
make sure the assumption I have from the paths you use is correct: You are
using CVS|CVSNT on a Unix host as your server, not CVS|CVSNT on a cygwin
