AFAIK, cvsps uses the date/time to create the changesets. There is a
problem with the BKCVS export since some files in the same commit can
have a different time (by an hour). I posted a mail some time ago
about this - 
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=110026570201544&w=2

I read that the old history won't be merged into the new repository
but, if you are interested, I have a script that can do this based on
the "(Logical change ...)" string in the file commit logs and it is
quite fast at generating the patches.
