user names gets the first the characters chopped off

Our CVS installation at is slightly broken.

I am using the CVS that comes with the latest FreeBSD (--version
says 1.11) plus the attached patch.

Some users (3 out of 7) gets (once in a while) the first two
characters of their username shopped out.

The CVS_USER_NAME variable the patch sets is okay, but the username
used in $Id:'s and such are borken. (See example below).

We use pserver for authentication. It happens both for users running
as their own user and for users mapped to another real user.

I am kinda at a loss where to even start looking, so any pointers
would be appreciated.

I looked at the change log for 1.11(.1) and I don't see anything
related, that is why I didn't try the latest version.
