[ED. I broke the lines above with "\"s to make it clear this is expected to
be one line in the file]

What is it you intended the `(echo ""; date; cat)` to do?
I tried:
(echo ""; date; cat) |less
and found it annoying in an interactive environment, as cat does not exit.
`(echo ""; date)` might be useful, though.

also I am assuming that in your loginfo, the line you sent is all on ONE

Is the /usr/local/cvsroot/CVSROOT/log script your own or one of the ones on
the net? (a net one we might be able to look at the source and guess what is
going wrong.)
Just from the name difference in your subject and here, I would expect the
problem might be that sh is trying to interpret a perl script and failing.
You might check the first line of /usr/local/cvsroot/CVSROOT/log and verify
the first line is of the type "#! /something/bin/perl", if it is then verify
that /something/bin/perl will execute (or change it to point to the real
perl on your system).
