CVS remembers the CVSROOT that was used to do the initial checkout of
each working directory (in CVS/Root) and uses it for all subsequent
operations in that directory.  It appears that mark did the original
checkout of that (sub)directory, so CVS has remembered his CVSROOT
(which contains his username) and is using it when you run update, but
you haven't ever done as ``cvs login'' as him to store his password in
your ~/.cvspass file.  What you probably want to do is to change
CVS/Root in that directory to your CVSROOT.
