CVS version 1.10 & 1.11

I have verifed this problem in both 1.10 and 1.11.1. This issue effects clients 
using pserver for authintication. 

inetd.conf line = 
cvspserver   stream   tcp  nowait  root /usr/local/bin/cvs  cvs -f 
--allow-root=/usr/local/cvsroot/ pserver

I setup a project called ca. I could log into cvs localy and remotly using 
pserver. I could check out ca with no problems. When i would attempt to do cvs 
diff or any other command within the checked out project I would get this 
/usr/local/cvsroot: no such repository. 

After many frustrating hours I figured out that my line in inetd.conf should 
not have had the trailing '/'
so when i changed it to : 
cvspserver   stream   tcp  nowait  root /usr/local/bin/cvs  cvs -f 
--allow-root=/usr/local/cvsroot pserver

and changed CVSROOT to:

Everything began to work. 

In the manual (cvs1.11.1p1) on page 21 the inetd.conf line is printed 
correctly, however mentioning that a trailing slash could cause problems may 
help someone else not run into the problem I had.
