This is not a change of cvs; you changed your CVSROOT description.

If you use a local directory (i.e., /usr/share/cvs/ or c:\cvsrepo) for
your CVSROOT (or with the "-d" option), then CVS asks for your
description for every single directory.

If you prepend a :local: (i.e., :local:/usr/share/cvs or
:local:c:\cvsrepo), CVS asks for the commit message only once.

So, you most probably want to add the :local: before your cvsroot.
