I want to report what seems to be a bug on CVS:
We are using CVS on RedHat Linux, and it works great.
Few days ago we tried to access a CVS repository from an IRIX64 machine,
but didn't succeded:

> cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:2401/devdata/cvs/stud login
(Logging in to address@hidden)
CVS password: 
2401/devdata/cvs/stud: no such repository
cvs login: authorization failed: server pluto.math.tau.ac.il rejected access

This is what we found on the syslog:
Sep  8 13:54:21 pluto xinetd[19044]: START: cvspserver pid=27562 
Sep  8 13:54:21 pluto cvs: login refused for 2401/devdata/cvs/stud 

If we run the same command from different computer (linux) it works fine:
sonic 1% cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:2401/devdata/cvs/stud login
Logging in to :pserver:address@hidden:2401/devdata/cvs/stud
CVS password: 
sonic 2% 

Only after removing the port number from the CVSROOT string, we succeded to
log in the repository:
> cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/devdata/cvs/stud login
(Logging in to address@hidden)
CVS password: 

I don't know if this is a bug or not, but I didn't find any other description
of this problem, so I decided to send it to you.

Some details about the machines:

The server (pluto):
address@hidden root]# uname -a
Linux pluto 2.4.18-3 #1 Thu Apr 18 07:37:53 EDT 2002 i686 unknown
address@hidden root]# cvs -v

Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.1p1 (client/server)

The (IRIX) client (or):
> uname -a
