who runs cvs?

Here is my cvspserver in xinetd.d

service cvspserver
        flags   = REUSE
        socket_type     = stream
        wait    = no
        protocol        = tcp
        user    = root
        server  = /usr/bin/cvs
        server_args     = --allow-root=/repository pserver
        log_on_failure  += USERID
        disable = no

I have a user called cvs, and a group called cvs on the CVS server, and a
user called remote in the cvs group also on there server.  Now
if I run

cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/repository login
(Loggin in to address@hidden)
CVS password:
.. now Im back to my client machine prompt no erros
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/repository checkout repository
cvs server: cannot open /root/.cvsignore: Permission denied
cvs [server aborted]: can't chdir(/root): Permission denied

I read info xinetd.conf and it says that the user = root should mean the
server is running the service cvspserver as root, so why can't root open
its home and chdir?  Am I missing something here?

Thanks for the tip.
