It sounds like whatever is calling cvs is using a malformed command line -
the 'Test' bit sounds really suspicious - like something someone would put
in a script while debugging it.  Obviously, since files have been added to
the command line already the -m is then treated as a file.

Also check your .cvsrc file to see if 'Test' is coming from it.
