When committing a permanent change, CVS makes a log entry of who
committed the change.  If you are committing the change logged in as
"root" (not under "su" or other root-priv giving program), CVS cannot
determine who is actually making the change.  As such, by default, CVS
disallows changes to be committed by users logged in as "root".  (You
can disable this option by commenting out the definition of CVS_BADROOT
in 'options.h' before building CVS.
