I use pserver.
The CVSROOT, in case it matters:

(Although in the file CVS/Root on my dev machine, the string
is ":pserver:address@hidden:2401:/var/cvsroot/ea",
i.e. there is a colon added after the port number. Does that
matter in any way? Today when I used the command line cvs client
on my dev machine thus:
  cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:2401:/var/cvsroot/ea version
it complained about the port number until I removed the colon.
But I think that's probably irrelevant to the problem I'm having
on the test server, where the CVSROOT has no colon after 2401.)

The CVS server *is* in another time zone. (I'm in Central,
it's in Eastern.)
If that is the problem, it's strange that it would occur
only on the test machine, not on the dev machine (both of
which are in CDT).
