That looks very odd.  How about starting fresh, since you had a 
different cvs client that perhaps got used to do the original checkout.

I'm guessing it *might* be a line ending problem in your cvs control 
files.  The cygwin client is saving those control files with CR only, 
and on Win32 CVSNT is expecting CRLF, so that could account for the 
funny offset.

Try your co / mod / ci operations fresh from a clean directory and let 
us know what happens.
