What release of CVS are you running?  You shouldn't have this problem
with the latest release (1.11.5).  With earlier releases, you need to
make sure that xinetd doesn't pass it's $HOME environment variable to
the child process.  The easiest way to do that is with

        passenv = PATH

in your xinetd config file as shown in the CVS manual.
