cvs pserver tries to access .cvsignore on server

Version: 1.10.7
rpm: cvs-1.10.7-7 (installed from RH 6.2)
O/S: Linux 2.2.16 (RH 6.2)
When using a Win32 client to access a cvs repository on RH 6.2, I kept getting the error message can't access "/home/russell/.cvsignore: permission denied".  It turns out that the "cvs pserver" was trying to open "$HOME/.cvsignore".  That may be a handy feature when running cvs as a client, but when running as a pserver it is definitely bad.
I don't know if it is relevant, but the command line used to invoke the pserver is: /usr/bin/cvs -T /var/tmp --allow-root=/CvsRoot pserver
