Just thinking through this problem a bit more, and after finding out that we're now having problems with the -F parameter when the argument has a space in the name (e.g. on Windows platforms, a typical temp directory is "C:\Documents and Settings\user"), could this code be easily be switched to use the -m option instead?  -m allows you to specify the comment inline with the command.  This seems to be to be a bit less resource intensive and at the same time fixes the problem of spaces in the directory names that we're having.

I'm going to change CvsRunner to use -m instead.  If you'd like diffs, I'd be happy to supply the changes I make.
