Just a thought... I haven't done a CVS migration from GNU CVS to CVSNT, or from Unix/Linux to Windows, but even moving my repository from an existing Windows+CVSNT to a new Windows+CVSNT box I would always use CVSNT to create the repository first and then copy the repository contents into the (newly created and initialised) repository. I've done this many times and never had a problem; I don't know what extra stuff CVSNT does or needs in the repository beyond what GNU CVS does, but can imagine that not having a correctly initialised CVSNT repository as a starting point could be a problem.
