In server mode, it is fine.

My cvs server is on solaris 5.8, version 1.11.2.

Hmm. Yes, you're correct. Excuse me for my off the cuff answer, but CVS appears to wait for its child processes in client/server mode.

As a workaround, you could use your script to queue the run and have a cronjob check the queue once a minute and lauch the real job.

I'm not sure how CVS is tracking its children, but you might try having you script daemonize too (close stdin, stdout, and stderr) and see if that lets it escape notice.
