It's not a limitation of CVSNT or even 2.x, it is a limitation of RCS.  If you 
are the only person who is using this sandbox, i.e. editing/committing/updating, 
then you are not likely to have a problem.  If there is more than one person 
accessing that sandbox and making changes, it will eventually corrupt your 
repository.  This is a very long standing FAQ for all versions of CVS and there 
are several ways to work around it, but they all involve giving the web server 
it's own sandbox (or exported).
