Please go back to the manual. This is not how the -P option is used.

That's because the files were "cvs remove"d after the specified date and
time. This is the correct cvs behavior.
Any differences with different time zones are only relevant if somehow the
time specified becomes after the files were removed instead of before.
It seems as if you don't understand the purpose of the -D option either.
If you won't read the manual, at least look at the help messages for the
command. Try:

cvs -H co
