Problem with 1.11 and :local:

I'm reposting this because I just noticed I stupidly forgot to put a 
subject on it the first time.  My apologies for the duplication.

I have a local repository (:local:) on my Win2K machine which I've had for
over a year.  I've been using the 1.10 client which was dl'd from  Everything has worked great.

This weekend, I noticed that 1.11 had been released, so I downloaded the
1.11-2 Win32 binary (the Win32 version of the command-line cvs, *not* 
WinCVS), again from  Now when I try to commit, update, etc., 
I get this error.
   cvs [commit aborted]: your apparent username (vrice) is unknown to this

I don't have a passwd file in CVSROOT, because I'm using :local:.  I've
looked in the 1.11 version of the Cederqvist and the NEWS file, and I've
searched the last two or three months of the archive for "local", but I
don't see any mention of changes to :local:, nor do I see any mention of
this error message.  I don't even find it in the source; the closest
thing I see is a "You are unknown to the system" in commit.c.

For the time being I've gone back to 1.10, but I'd like to find out what's
wrong either with 1.11 or with my configuration.  Does anyone have any
