Have you heard that old Henny Youngman gag?

"Doctor, doctor, it hurts when I do this <gesture>!"

"OK, so don't do it".

CVS is not completely at ease with filenames with spaces, unless you're very
diligent about quoting. 

How are you accessing the server (i.e. what are you specifying in your
CVSROOT variable)? Local? Pserver? NTServer/GSSAPI? Ext?

Perhaps TortoiseCVS has bugs in the quoting of filenames with spaces? That
are exposed by certain protocols?  

The best place to get help on this topic is the CVSNT mailing list (which is
a separate list - see, where the CVSNT/Windows experts
hang out.
