I suspect that your two machines are in different timezones, so the time
syncing is actually working against you... in GMT their times are different.

If you're using WinCVS 1.2 then you'll be seeing all sorts of time related
problems (OS issues... no, not fixed in 2003 either... the workarounds weren't
in Wincvs 1.2 which is pretty out of date now).
