env | sort | grep CVS
returns nothing.  There are no CVS* variables set!  Strange.  Where is
it getting the cvsroot from?  Even if I remove the .cvspass file, it
still uses the pserver line from before.  It's definitely getting
cached somewhere.  greping the env for pserver shows nothing.

Incidently, I also removed root's ~root/.cvspass but it didn't change anything.

Still open for ideas.

Someone sets CVSROOT, if you can just type "cvs login" and get a prompt
for ``Logging in to :pserver:[EMAIL PROTECTED]/home/foo/bar''.

Can you run, on both systems, the following?

    $ env | sort | grep CVS
