As I've noted before, backward slashes *usually* work, but there are
cases where they don't, and the resulting errors can be quite
mysterious.  I strongly suggest always using forward slashes instead. 
Although you switched to forward slashes in the command, you'll not that
your root still contains backslashes.

Is n: really a local drive, or is it some kind of network share?  If
it's a network share, then the problem is almost certainly some kind of
bug or incompatibility in the network filesystem.  If the repository
isn't local, you should use client/server CVS to access it, not network
