Are you using FreeBSD locally to do these checkouts? It sounds like
cvs isn't expanding $FreeBSD$ on your local machine. See, when
someone checks in a file, it gets checked in with the *old* $FreeBSD$
line; cvs is supposed to update it on checkout. That last bit isn't
happening in your case for some reason. Since $FreeBSD$ (well, all
custom keywords) are a FreeBSD extension, trying to use another system
will give the results you're seeing.
