sanity.sh does not invoke cvs with the -f option; therefore
the users ~/.cvsrc file is read.  This can cause spurious

For example, mine contains, amongst other things,

    import -ko

Which causes test rdiff-8 to fail.

If you don't want to invoke cvs with -f, then perhaps just a check
early in sanity.sh for the existence of ~/.cvsrc.  And if it exists
tell the user that sanity.sh depends upon the absence of the file,
so please move it aside and run sanity.sh again.
