    Hey people. Apparently, cvs' attempt to create a $HOME/.cvspass file is
either failing for some reason, or it's not attempting it at all. 

address@hidden carsnau]$ cvs login 
Logging in to :pserver:address@hidden:2401/usr/local/cvs
CVS password:
cvs login: failed to open /home/carsnau/.cvspass for reading: No such file or
cvs [login aborted]: fatal error: exiting
address@hidden carsnau]$ echo $CVSROOT
address@hidden carsnau]$

    There's nothing wrong with the permissions in my home directory. If I do a
touch $HOME/.cvspass, the problem goes away. Does cvs not create this file as
