So, I tried the commands given above on two more cygwin systems:

Notebook with cygwin 1.3.9 / Windows 98SE - same failure
Desktop with cygwin 1.3.6 / Windows 2K - works as on solaris!!

I tried to revert my notebook back to cygwin 1.3.6, but the failure 
stays. This evening I will try to revert my home PC back to 1.3.6. I 
will also compare the cygcheck -s files to see other differences.

Maybe it helps finding if other people (YOU) try the cvs commands also.
