It seems CMD is spawning processes concurrently so the first process locks the file while the following processes fail.
So you may use "start /w" before each command to make CMD wait the process termination before interpreting next command line.:
start /w %CVS_EXE% update -P Miranda-IM >report.txt
start /w %CVS_EXE% update -P Plugins >>report.txt
start /w %CVS_EXE% update -P Protocols >>report.txt
start /w %CVS_EXE% update -P SDK >>report.txt
start /w %CVS_EXE% update -P Tools >>report.txt

It must solve this problem

> set CVSROOT=:ext:ghazan at cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/miranda-icq
> set CVS_EXE=c:\util\cvs.exe
> set CVS_RSH=c:\util\putty\plink.exe

> %CVS_EXE% update -P SDK >>report.txt
> %CVS_EXE% update -P Tools >>report.txt
