Grasping at straws:  The CVSROOT appears to have changed.  I
expect that's because you censored it the first time ... but if
the change is for real, are you sure there's a /usr/local/bin/cvs
on louie1?

Failing that, this is pretty weird.

Try "cvs -t checkout Term-Interact".  In the trace output, the
"Starting server:" line shows you the exact command that the
client CVS is using to (try to) to fire up the server.  That'll
give you something to work with; see if you can get a CVS server
running independently of the client.  (You can't do anything
useful with it; just see whether you can launch it.)

The CVS server's not very talkative.  It just appears to swallow
whatever you type at it.  But you can recognize it as follows:
  - type a CTRL-D
  - type a CTRL-J
It'll say something about "dying gasps" and then exit.

My Wine works.  However it crashes about half the time on startup.
Apparently their simulation of windoze API is getting too accurate.  :)
