Though it's not a fix it might be a (hopefully temporary) workaround. 
Add more flags to rsync (from 'rsync 2>&1 |grep -i cvs'):

  -C, --cvs-exclude           auto ignore files in the same way CVS does

Haven't tried it, nor read the man page, so I have no idea whatever it
works or not.  And of course, if you "export" cvs access this won't help
a bit...

Best regards,
