In light of your comments below - please also include the server version.

If possible please also sent the results of rlsacl:

cd C:\user\rep\module
"C:\Program Files\CVSNT\cvs.exe" -q -d :sspi:host:/cvs/rep rlsacl module/impl
"C:\Program Files\CVSNT\cvs.exe" -q -d :sspi:host:/cvs/rep rlsacl module
"C:\Program Files\CVSNT\cvs.exe" -q -d :sspi:host:/cvs/rep rlsacl .

If possible please include a trace of the checkout with server tracing enabled - if this will take additional time or is difficult - just skip it - with the onther info (server version, rlsacl) hopefully I can reproduce it here.

OK - this must be a completely different error to what I've seen then - and all I can deduce so far is that it's limited to particular server versions (since the command works OK against sourceforge and also against 2.5.05 itself).

I suppose there is a very very small chance that it is something to do with your local install.  So running test commands against sourceforge on the same PC would be very very interesting (please do not use ext - stick to inbuilt protocols - if you need ssh to get through your firewall please use :ssh:host:/repo).
