Cannot commit file changes (client/server)

I am having the exact same problem.  I am running a WinCVS client 
trying to commit changes to a UNIX CVS server.  I can check files out, 
but I cannot commit due to the error below.  This seems like a pretty 
common configuration - has there been any resolution to this issue?  I 
have tried setting CVSEDITOR/EDITOR/VISUAL on both the server and 
client to no avail.  

Any help would be appreciated.

                Until you get a better answer from a CVS guru, here's 
my guess as a Unix

                The problem is that CVS was designed originally for 
Unix systems and use
                a Unix model, which you'll have to emulate.  You'll 
probably need to set
                the terminal type.  I don't know what the terminal 
type of an msdos
                system is, but I'd try "ansi."  Type "set TERM=ansi" 
once at the
                Windows/DOS prompt if you'll be running any cvs 
commands which require
                full-screen editing (e.g. commit).

                More Unixlike junk.  This I can't really help with.
