No, it is not.
This is for CVSNT...

Even more off: CVSNT does not run on W98 and similar non-NT systems...

But, probably you are using a CVSNT *client* against your local
repository and now you failed to mention the most valuable
Which version of CVSNT executable are you using?

The problem is in CVSWEB:s usage of the *very* old RCS tools for
parsing the RCS repository files. These tools do not handle well all
the new stuff that has been added along the way such as mergepoints
etc. If you switch to ViewCvs instead you run a better chance since
ViewCvs nowadays uses the cvsnt executable as a RCS parser if you tell
it to.
