This has nothing whatsoever to do with CVS, it's a shell question. The
shell substitutes environment variables inside double quoted strings, so
if you want something that looks like a variable substitution literally
instead, you either have to escape the $:
cvs commit -m "Changed initial value of \$my_var"
or use single quotes instead:
cvs commit -m 'Changed initial value of $my_var'
