thank you for the input.  I still see nothing pointing to the other id.  our 
CVSROOT on the server where the sandbox is is using 
pserver:address@hidden:/repo.....  I am logged in as "build".  on server where 
cvs is hosted, the pserver is set up with xinted.d as follows:
service cvspserver
        disable                 = no
        port                    = 2401
        socket_type             = stream
        protocol                = tcp
        wait                    = no
        user                    = root
        group                   = cvs
        log_type                = FILE /var/log/cvspserver
        passenv                 = PATH
        server                  = /usr/bin/cvs
        env                     = '$HOME=/repos/cvsroot'
        log_on_failure          += USERID
        server_args             = -f --allow-root=/repos/cvsroot pserver

So I am not really sure what was done in the past to this working directory.  
Funny thing is some of my commits are showing "build" as the user.   It's not 
that important, but I'd just prefer that the old id didn't show up.  At least 
if it was my id or the build id it would be better.
thank you

And it caries again depending on the client software.  Eg: if you are using 
WinCVS, TortoiseCVS or anything else that uses the CVSNT client then it will 
depend on the CVSROOT which you used to create the sandbox.

- named user:  :pserver:address@hidden:/myrepo 
- current user:   :pserver:myhost:/myrepo 

We always recommend you create the sandboxes using the 'current user' method - 
then many people can 'share' a sandbox and when each 'commits' it's their 
'logged in name' that gets used no the name of the person who created the
