cvs admin -o<revision>

Or you could retrieve the previous version and check it in on top,
with a comment such as "eating my words". :-)

I thought that you almost never have to set the CVSROOT variable once
you've established your project work tree -- it's all stored in
CVS/Root anyway.  I believe CVSROOT is only used when you do a "cvs
checkout" and that doesn't happen very often...
