Why are you using tcpserver instead of inetd?

At the very least, you need a ``-f'' global option (just before the
--allow-root is a good place).  If that doesn't fix it, then CVS is
almost certainly inheriting $HOME from tcpserver which is in turn
inheriting it from your login shell -- you'll have to arrange to unset
it somewhere along the way.
