I can't give you the exact information because this would include information about my client. Nevertheless, find the exchanged information in <>.

My CVSROOT looks like that: 


14:45:48:   -> call_in_directory /code/<projectname>/loadtest/,workspace/loadtest/
cvs server: cannot remove loadtest directory: Directory not empty
14:45:49:   -> call_in_directory /code/<projectname>/src/,workspace/src/
14:45:49:   -> rename(CVS/Entries.Backup,CVS/Entries)
14:45:49:   -> wnt_rename(CVS/Entries.Backup,CVS/Entries)
14:45:49:   -> rename(CVS/Entries.Extra.Backup,CVS/Entries.Extra)
14:45:49:   -> wnt_rename(CVS/Entries.Extra.Backup,CVS/Entries.Extra)
14:45:49:   -> unlink_file(CVS/Entries.Log)
14:45:49:   -> unlink_file(CVS/Entries.Extra.Log)

I hope this is enough information to follow up.
