Yes, you're right, ssh-agent would be a solution to this. Thank you for
this suggestion which I totally forgot.

But: I don't see any reason *why* CVS should behave this way. From my
understanding (and without knowing the inner workings of CVS), in my
naive mind, I thought that connecting exactly once via ssh and doing
"everything that has to be done" should suffice for cvs release to work.

IMHO, using ssh-agent is a good work-around, but it only cures the
symptoms, not the disease.
