cvs 1.11.1 failed to create .cvspass if it doesn't exist

The 1.11.1 version will not create an initial copy of the .cvspass file.

The problem is in password_entry_operation in the CVS_FOPEN with "r".  When
the file does not exist the routine errors out.

A reasonable solution seems to be to CVS_FOPEN "a+" which will open
read/write and create the file if it does not exist.   (The downside is a
rewind if the CVS_FOPEN succeeds).
