Ok, I have a clue as to what is happening....

The cvs pserver I'm using is sending back a "-f update: File/name"

Here is the strace of the actual read that my cvs client gets from the 

read(4, "E -f update: Updating .\n", 1024) = 24

Pcl-cvs sees this and gets confuddled and instead of interpreting this properly
 Message: -f update: Updating .

A couple of other gui tools have been confused by this behaviour.

The only source of the -f I can find is in the servers /etc/xinetd.conf
where the pserver is started with -f option to ignore any rogue ~/.cvsrc
lying around.

Question 1 then is....

Can I tell pserver not to do that?

Question 2 is can I tell PCL-CVS to ignore the -f ?
