Are you running cvs entirely on the windows machine, or do you have a
remote server? I haven't looked at the code very hard, but I don't think
start_server() should be called if you are using cvs in local mode.

What is your $CVSROOT environment variable set to?
What about the CVS/Root files in your working directory?

What about other commands that operate on the working directory, like
'cvs log'?
