Running CVS updates via CGI

Hello list!

For some time I've been trying to write a little Perl script on
win32 to run "cvs update" in a particular directory (which is
an under-development web site).  I'm just using a system(@args)
call in Perl to run the update.

CVS invariably replies that "could not find out home directory".

I've tried using -d (though I have a CVSROOT environment variable
set too).

The script works when I run it manually, so I'm assuming
it has to do with the user that the CGI runs as when invoked
via the http server.

I'm thinking that the "home directory" referred to is on the
working-directory side, not the repository side.

Anyone have any success with this, or even just ideas, I'm
running out.
