I investigated it and realized that this was my mistake. I had copied
the imported git repository from my laptop to my desktop using 'scp
-r' and it changed .git/HEAD to a file, not a link as it should have
been. I copied it again, this time with tar to preserve symbolic
links, and cvsimport started to work again. So this was just a PEBCAK.
Thanks for your help.

'git log | grep commit | wc -l' says 2704 commits. I have to say that
git has made my life a lot easier. It was really easy to import the
CVS history to git and now I can read the history properly with gitk.
With CVS I would have been banging my head to the wall all the time.

Now all I want is svnimport and darcsimport :)
