I have confirmed that this is a bug manifest by NT4.  An identical CVSNT 
configuration was created on an XP workstation box, and with this XP 
installatino 'cvs ls' properly lists the modules within the repository. 
  Bug #50 has been created accordingly (although the OS is "other", as 
NT4 is not listed!)
