That indicates that the CVS administrative files (in the CVS
subdirectory) in that particular directory have DOS line endings
(<CR><LF>), but the CVS executable you're using is running in Unix mode
and thus interpreting the <CR>s as data rather than as part of the line
endings.  I don't know if that's a problem with the way the CVS
executable was built or with the cygwin environment, but it's not a
problem with CVS itself.
