If setting CVS_SERVER did the trick, you are using rsh as an access method
rather than pserver.  Changing the inetd line only works if inetd (via cvs
pserver) is used to run the server executable.  The :ext: and :server: methods
use CVS_SERVER and then the default.

I think this would have been apparent if you had been reading about the :ext:
method.  See 2.9.2 Connecting with rsh.
