This be your problem.  I think it may be a bug in cvs.  Effectively
this should update your current directory.  But with a new directory
(empty) I would expect that it checks out nothing (error) or
everything in your repo.

My testing shows that it attempts to check out the entire repo.  But
it fails and acts weird after it fails (my cmd window was foobar'd). 
This may be because of outdated/corrpted modules as we have some
outdated/unused modules.  But if yours is failing on a newly created
repo then it may be a CVS bug.

Anyhow, please try to specify the module name explicitly and see if
that works at least:
cvs -d$CVSROOT co LocalHostMonitorAPI src diagnostic

(Please post the results)
