(Sorry for replying to a thread so old, but I just recently found out this 
solution and I figure it'd be helpful to anyone who's googling for it.)

Anyway, the exact same thing was happening to me - it was claiming a repository 
that *was* there wasn't. And, oddly enough, it would work if I added a trailing 
slash in the CVSROOT. Well, turns out the problem is this: the 
/usr/sbin/cvs-pserver program you're running from your inetd config is actually 
a *script* that runs cvs with options of its own that it reads from 
/etc/cvs-pserver.conf. Specifying options like --allow-root in inetd.conf won't 
work, because it ignores them and chooses its own to pass to the actual cvs 
binary. If the option in /etc/cvs-pserver.conf doesn't match the EXACT 
repository string you want to use, it will fail just as you described. For me 
the problem was that the option had a trailing slash where it shouldn't, for 
you it might be pointing to an old repository path.

Hope that helps!
