What's the CVSROOT set to?
AFAIK it should work fine if you do this:
$ export CVS_RSH=ssh
$ cvs -d email@example.com checkout blah
$ cd blah
$ cvs -d firstname.lastname@example.org update -PAd
Note: cvs seems to ignore the CVSROOT environment variable if it
finds a CVS/Root file. If this is the case, use the "-d"
command line option.
The CVSROOT can be :ext:user@cvsserver or you can leave off the
Hope that helps.
