Because history of a lot of files is now full with fake revisions. So
what is the admin command and can it fix all files at once?

Yes, but I'm not sure if newer versions of CVSNT will integrate well
with TortoiseCVS, and TortoiseCVS is really too enjoyable version
control to be rejected...

Yes, but latest CVSNT versions is compiled in different way and need a
lot more libraries than version that comes with TCVS. And see above - 
I'm not sure if I will have other problems with them...
