Re: pserver problem, still

I've confirmed all my configs are correct, and that the path to cvs can be
seen by everyone... re-built the repository, making sure ownership and
permissions are correct... made sure the passwd file is correct... ugh,
and just enjoyed a quick city-wide power outage (yay for "continue
interrupted message"!)... and I STILL can't connect via pserver:

> cvs -d :pserver:zaren@(host):/usr/local/cvsrepos login
CVS password:
cvs login: authorization failed: server (host) rejected access to
/usr/local/cvsrepos for user zaren

The Cederqvist suggests telnetting to the server to troubleshoot:

    One good debugging tool is to "telnet servername 2401". After
    connecting, send any text (for example "foo" followed by return). If
    CVS is working correctly, it will respond with

    cvs [pserver aborted]: bad auth protocol start: foo

which I did:

> telnet (host) 2401
Trying (host)...
Connected to (host).
Escape character is '^]'.
cvs [pserver aborted]: bad auth protocol start: xxx

Connection closed by foreign host.

So it appears that the server *is* working correctly, but it still won't
let me connect.  I'm going a bit buggy trying to figure out why this still
isn't working.  Any other idea from someone with more experience? :)
