Is nobody out there who can help?

the facts:
Linux (SuSE 9.0), cvs version: 1.11.6.


My $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd looks like


My xinetd.d/cvs is (the important things)
server_args= -f --allow-root=/home/repository pserver

xinetd.conf is checked: No problem with access.
/etc/hosts.allow is checked: No problems with access
/etc/hosts.deny is also checked.

a nmap -sT -P0 localhost shows the Port 2401 as open after starting xinetd. If I replace the cvs server with a "debug" ''echo "Hello World!'' it works.

The symptom:
address@hidden> cvs login
Logging in to :pserver:address@hidden:2401/home/repository
CVS password:

After typing the right password:
cvs [Login aborted]: internal error: get_cvs_port_number called for invalid connection method (ext): Invalid argument

/var/log/messages shows:
cvs:password mismatch for andre: 123456 vs. abcdef
cls:login failure (for /home/repository)

The password are two different strings. But the password is right.
If I type a wrong password, cvs answer with following:
cvs login: authorization failed: server localhost rejected access to /home/repository for user andre

/var/log/messages shows:
cvs:password mismatch for andre: ikuhju vs. abcdef
cls:login failure (for /home/repository)

The command ''ngrep "*." port 2401'' shows nothing during the login.

If I take CVSROOT=/home/repository it works all fine, as I expected.

Why cvs don't work?

Thanks in advance

Best regards
