What has most likely happened is that someone has changed $TMPDIR for
root to be /tmp/root and that setting is getting inherited by everything
that root starts, including [x]inetd and then CVS.  Check your [x]inetd
config file against what's shown in the CVS manual:

If that doesn't help, add an explicit ``-T /tmp'' before ``pserver'' to
the CVS command in [x]inetd.conf.
