Without a CVSROOT/passwd file *and* lack of direction in the
CVSROOT/config file, my understanding is CVS falls back to
authentication via "passwd". I just played with it without a
CVSROOT/passwd file and was able to login, but with the passwd
file, I couldn't authenticate ;(. My error messages seemed to be
more explanatory (login failed). Sorry, can't be more help...
