Probably a bad idea -- you need to run as root to be able to validate

-b is totally ignored unless you're running a really old version of CVS.

Not necessary as long as you have the following line...

You may want to change that to "passenv = PATH" so that your
administrative scripts have a reasonable $PATH to work with.

Probably because CVS wasn't running as root as thus couldn't validate
the password.
