The path to your CVSROOT contains a symbolic link, which confuses CVS. 
If your system supports "loopback" mounts, use that instead of a
symbolic link.  If not, you'll have to use the real path to the
repository or live with the errors.  There have also been a number of
patches posted if you want to consult the archives and experiment with
one or more of them.
