Yes, I sometimes still use CVS. And I just found out that it is incapable of displaying the logged commit messages in chronological order. It can only show them for each file, with the resulting duplicates and all-around chaos if you do this for every file in a module. Thankfully, there is a way around this. A tool called cvs2cl.pl converts the cvs log output into something readable.
