I'm running a GNU/Linux system via Debian.
I can get the test case to work in both Emacs 21 and Emacs from CVS:

  * GNU Emacs 21.4.1 (i386-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars) of
    2005-03-17 on trouble, modified by Debian

  * GNU Emacs (i386-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
    of 2005-08-08 on malambruno, modified by Debian

  $ cvs --version

  Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.12.9 (client/server)

I don't try to appear as a maintainer of vc-mode, so others are more
capable of speaking to your question about changes to vc-cvs.el.

Thanks for the information on a minimal CVS repository.
