I would recommend either upgrading the old server to 2.5.02 or 
downgrading the new one to 2.0.51 so you can rule out CVSNT (or at least 
the change in CVSNT version) as the culprit.

In my experience, overwritten files is a sign of a bad HDD.  Assuming 
you aren't using :local: protocol across a network link (look for a 
network drive letter anywhere in your CVSROOT), I would guess hardware 
as the most likely cause.
