If you are writing a GUI then should I assume it is on Windows?  If so
then you are most likely using the CVSNT client: beware that the CVSNT
'ls' is different from the CVS 'ls' and also that CVSNT has an API for
GUI's - checkout the source to wmfree from the tree to see how to browse
repositories (or use that code as a base for your own).  If indeed you
are using CVSNT then please post your questions/contributions to the
CVSNT newsgroup.
