Thank you for looking in this.
I have an unproven theory that the problem is not cvsweb.

Your investigation prompted me to check my local repository which
uses cvsweb-2.0.6. cvsweb has no problem with that file. I see that
FreeBSD is using FreeBSD-CVSweb 2.0.6. It has a problem with that
This suggests that the problem may not be with cvsweb, but with
something else. The error message:
Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
A grep of the repo projects/cvsweb does not find "Bad Request". This
also suggests it could be something other than cvsweb that is
displaying this message.
