I've been using CVSNT with WSAD 5.0 without too much trouble.
We weren't using the repository prefix, though.  I just 
upgraded to 2.0.51 to make use of the new path aliasing.
Seems to work fine with WSAD.  My guess is that if you
(Carl) deleted the repository prefix in the configuration,
you wouldn't have trouble with Eclipse.

I don't use Eclipse's CVS library to do CVS stuff in my
java apps, though.  The library that they use with
Netbeans (http://javacvs.netbeans.org/library/) seems to 
work great for this, and it seems pretty stable.
