The documentation says:

      --cvs %{sVv}


      This option is only usful for old-style CVS format strings
      (i.e. prior to CVS 1.12.6).  You can continue using old- style
      format strings with newer cvs if you write %1{sVv} and set
      UseNewInfoFmtStrings=yes in CVSROOT/config.  For more recent
      versions of CVS you should, however, use the new --root and
      --dir arguments and place %{sVv} at the end of the commandline.

Maybe using %1{sVv} instead helps?
