Why do you think it shouldn't have generated a report at all?  The -d
option only affects which log messages get printed, you always get the
header for each file regardless of whether any log messages are selected
unless you also use the -S option.

A space between -d and its argument is perfectly acceptable.  If < is
interpreted specially by your shell (as it is in most Unix-like and
Windows shells), then you need some kind of quoting.  That is an OS
issue, not specific to CVS.
