I had the same problem.  What I discovered was a bogus entry in my
/home/srosenst/.cvspass file (I use pserver mode) that contained the info for a
root login to my CVS server :

Was:      :pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/REPOSITORY/gplus xxxxxxxx
Should be:     :pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/REPOSITORY/gplus xxxxxxxx

How it got there I don't know (I'm fairly new to CVS), but when I removed the
entry for root everything worked again.  You might just want to do is delete the
.cvspass file and perform a new login as the non-root user.

I hope this helps.

Subject:  CVS Commit Problem

To whom it may concern,

I seem to be having troubles committing files to the repository, whenever I
commit a file, cvs complains that it cannot be done under the user root when
infact I am logged an as a different user.  I am using Tortoise CVS Client
for Windows and a RedHat Linux 7.1 pserver.  I have created a passwd file in
CVSROOT and I can authenticate to it no problem logged in as a user other
than root, why is it that cvs is still referencing the root account whenever
I try to commit modules??

Any help would be muchly appreciated
