IIRC (because it has been a long time since I used cvs2cl to search this way 

cd my/sandbox
cvs2cl -r -t -R 122345  -b --lines-modified --summary \
        --no-hide-branch-additions --show-dead

I think the above line will show pretty much everything.  I normally only use 
-r -t and sometimes

cvs2cl --help #for all the options
