CVS doesn't generate passwords, it only checks them.

Things that do generate passwords usually pick the salt randomly.

It's hard to say -- you haven't said what version of CVS you're running
or exactly what goes wrong.  Perhaps your server is too old to
understand empty passwords.  Perhaps your client is too old to
understand anonymous access.  Perhaps you did something else wrong.
