Problems with the :server: access

We are using the :server: access method to access our CVS repository. Trying
to check-out a module, one of my users got the following message:
        warning: unrecognized response `text' from cvs server 
(where 'text' is some arbitrary string.)

I figured out that 'text' was actually printed from the ~/.cshrc file on the
server. The ~/.cshrc file of the user printed a few things to the standard
output (e.g., "echo $PATH" or printing some special characters that change
the title of the xterm window) and these things got back to the CVS client
as an "unregcognized response from cvs server". Most of these things ended
in a warning message like the above but some of them also caused erroneous
conflicts to occur.

What is wrong here, and what can the user do to fix it? Is it a server
configuration problem (is the .cshrc restricted not to print on stdout) or a
client configuration problem?
