WinCvs to teach it better (UNIX - CR/LF) manners? I did uninstall it and
reinstalled it hoping it would pick up the environment more intelligently,
but it looks like it retained its previous settings.

I do not think it is possible to use WinCVS and Cygwin compiled CVS on the same sandbox. Cygwin CVS expects ALL files to be in Unix mode. While WinCVS can check out sandbox files with Unix line endings, it should still expect the CVS/* files to use Windows line endings. You must choose one tool or the other.
