That's the correct result.  We now know that your CVS works correctly
when run interactively, so we just need to figure out what goes wrong
when it's run from xinetd.  Try running it by hand in a clean
environment like you get from xinetd using the env command:

        env - PATH="$PATH" /usr/bin/cvs -f --allow-root=/var/lib/cvsroot

(Check the man page for env: some versions use a bare "-" to clear the
environment, others have an actual option.)  Also try running it as
root, since that's what xinetd is doing.

And *PLEASE* try the telnet test.
