This is definitely NOT true. TortoiseCVS does nothing to enforce "watch 
on" - the only place where a "cvs watch on" command can be issued is 
when creating a new module (there's a checkbox that will cause a "cvs 
watch on" command to be run after creating the module). If you selected 
this checkbox when you created the module, that will be the explanation. 
Simply run a "cvs watch off" command with no arguments in the top level 
folder of the sandbox.
