problem with cvs log -d

one of my colleagues modified a set of files three days ago.  I need to back out what he did and I cannot contact him to find out which files he touched.
I wanted to use the date range feature of cvs log to see all commits from the developer in question on the given date, but I cannot seem to be able to get the date format correct.  I have tried many different formats, of which, I've listed only a couple:
cvs -v
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.9 (client)
bass33>cvs log -d"2001-5-8" -wcsm
cvs [log aborted]: Can't parse date/time: 2001-5-8
bass33>cvs log -d"May 5 2001<" -wcsm
cvs [log aborted]: Can't parse date/time: May 5 2001
cvs log -d"3 days ago" -wcsm -N
this just lists every file with a log entry for the given developer
I cannot seem to be able to specify a date. 
anybody have any ideas?
