i would wonder if you did the checkout cleanly. 

did you first obtain the checkout from cvs as guest as detailed in 
the project webpages?

I know that if you do a checkout with one user, then try to commit as
another with tortise it won't work.

if this is the case, you need to remove your current checkout and
re-do the checkout from wincvs.

ps, i prefer the eclipse cvs, builds in nicely to the IDE
