Add '-f' to your cvs pserver command line in inetd.conf to prevent CVS
from trying to read configuration files in $HOME.  Something like:

    cvs -f pserver --allow-root=...

I used to think people were crazy to get tatoos.  Nowadays, I envy
them that clarity of thought.  There was at least one point in their lives
when they thought they knew what they were doing.  They could walk into a
tatoo parlor and say, "I want a big old pig, in red and black, with flames
shooting out of its nose!  And I want it right there!  That's who I am!"
