Are you using cygwin?  There's some kind of a bug in some versions where
it returns the wrong error code and thus makes CVS think there's
something wrong rather than directory just being empty.

I'll also note in passing that you should use forward slashes in your
CVSROOT, not backslashes.  Some parts of CVS don't handle backslashes so
it will probably bite you sooner or later.
