BFN.  Paul.

Yeah, in the case of `cvs login', CVS needs somewhere to write to. It stores semi-encrypted passwords in $HOME/.cvspass on login and uses those passwords to connect during later updates/commits/whatever.

In the particular case of the update from an anonymous account without a password, where the call to `cvs login' is not actually required, I could see treating the mising $HOME as a missing .cvspass file (for commands other than `cvs login'), in which case CVS usually attempts the command with an empty password.

We love to see patches!
