Pserver replies with "E -f update: Updating .\n"

Is it usual for pserver to reply to an update request with...
  "E -f update: Updating .\n"?

It seems to be a new thing since we upgraded to a Solaris based version
1.11.20 cvs server that it is adding in the "-f" part and it seems to be
confusing some gui front ends like Emacs pcl-cvs.

My only guess is it is coming from the command line in /etc/xinetd.conf
where we run the pserver...

cvspserv stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/cvs -f --allow-root=....

Is there anyway, apart from removing the -f, of stopping it doing that?
