What's the CVSROOT set to?

AFAIK it should work fine if you do this:

$ export CVS_RSH=ssh
$ cvs -d user@cvs.example.com checkout blah
$ cd blah
$ cvs -d user@cvs.example.com 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
:ext: part.

Hope that helps.
