what happens if you use cvs 1.12 on the client side also?

Indeed cvs 1.12 is declared as a feature release. However I use different  
combinations of cvs and cvsnt. Never (as far as I can remember) I had a  
problem to perform operations using cvsnt as client and cvs 1.12 as server.

Looking into the Cederquist maybe you should remove the -m 'COPY' stuff:
Wrappers refers to a cvs feature which lets you control certain settings  
based on the name
of the file which is being operated on.  The settings are ?-k? for binary  
files, and ?-m? for
nonmergeable text files.
The ?-m? option specifies the merge methodology that should be used when a  
file is updated...
