Yep.  In fact it's a good idea to regularly dump your sandbox and check
out a clean copy to a new location - just proves everything is working

I hope not. If it is the case then just add the project files manually
in the clean directory if that is the case.

That is an error you'd need to raise with whoever supports the PushOK

Switching to a plugin with support is a good idea.  Of course I'd
recommend the March Hare one since March Hare employ me and also provide
the funding for the the CVSNT project developers and equipment.
Purchasing CVS Suite is a good way to conribute back to the project.
Note: CVS Suite uses a different version of the CVSNT client and server
which you'll need to upgrade to.
