Well, one problem is that you should not share your repo with NFS.

CVS and NFS both have locking mechanisms, and they don't play nicely.

I don't think those files are supposed to stay in /tmp, I don't know
if this has anything to do with using NFS to share your repository.

Why not use client/server CVS with RSH/SSH or pserver instead?
Hopefully someone else can give more insight on the /tmp problem.
