Where do you find this commitid?
ALso is there something similar to this for an update?  I.e. someone updated an 
existing tree in error.  Is there a way to return to the previous tree?  Just

CVSNT (GPL, unix/windows/etc) introduced the conecpt of a 'commit id' a
unique number for each commit - you can use this to 'rollback' to the
previous revision.

Eg (something like):
cvs update -j @commitid -j "<@commitid" filename or modulename

I believe that CVS 1.12 has backported some or all of this
functionality, but you'll have to check the manual.
