What version of CVS are you using?  F, O, E, and T records do not have
associated file names, so asking for any of those types of records will
get you all of them.  C, G, U, W, A, M, and R records do have associated
filenames and will be limited to those contaning the specified string. 
This definitely works with CVS 1.11 -- it's possible that there are bugs
in previous versions.

No.  history doesn't look at the modules file, only the history file.
