Yes and no.  It's xinetd that opens the port, not CVS, so the port won't
be open just because you run CVS, but xinetd should still be running and
thus the port should be open, unless you stopped xinetd and didn't
restart it.

See above -- the port *should* be open, unless xinetd isn't running. 
Start xinetd, do the telnet test, and tell us what happens!
