I had a similar problem, and solved it renaming the file in the server repository and giving to developers that use WinCVS a macro to rename the file in CVS/Entries and in file system.

The first update will delete the file from the CVS/Entries, the second adds it with the new name. Why do cvs rename the file to the notation of CVS/Entries while updating instead of changing CVS/Entries to the notation of the file in the repository ?
