It seems to be something specific to cygwin -- that works fine on other
Unix and Unix-like systems.  You'll need to find someone with more
intimate knowledge of cygwin and the cygwin port of CVS to figure out
what's going on.  For this specific issue, you can set $CVS_PASSFILE to
work around the problem.
