-D specifies an instant in time.  The cvs operation should yield the
code as it was at that instant.

If you pass -D only a date, without a time of day, then the instant of
time that you get is midnight (00:00:00) on that date.  No matter how
many commits there were on that day, the result you get is from before
the first of those commits.
