Thanks for the response, Rudolf.

I am fairly certain that this is not correct.  The "second cvs" is
actually the first element in the executable's "argv" array (argv[0]).
 On a regular shell command line argv[0] is set to the filename of the
executable, but in inetd you can set it to be anything that works in
the context.  In this case I assume it either must be "cvs" or "cvs"
will cause process tracking and logging to give the results you would
have expected to see if you were running it from a shell.

After I get it to work (whenever that might be) I will try changing
the argv[0] to something like "cvs.pserver" to see if it makes a
difference.  Or maybe someone here could tell me.
