It's a difference between cvs 1.11 and cvs 1.12.

In cvs 1.12 they modified the behaviour of the log ranges a while ago. 
I added the cvs 1.12 behaviour as an option so as not to break the 
(many) frontends that relied exclusively on the old behaviour.

So you're going to have to support both anyway even if you don't 
explicitly support cvsnt, probably doing version checks on the server to 
work out what version it's using.  I couldn't tell you exactly which 
revision of cvs it was changed in - you'd have to ask them about that.
