I think this information may help you.
Since I tried similar to git and fould following problem in CVS.
*,v.err and *,v.orig merging problem for Korean
(I think it was apt-howto but I do not remember now)
The file corruption of server caused broken CVS data. When it was
recovered, I think javi fixed it enough to check out recent history.
But some deep history still contain corrupted data. This was causing
problem converting to git. Apparently, svn script is more robust but
data created may be problematic.
