try cvs -t import ... to invoke a trace.

The execute could possibly come from local cvs trying to execute ssh
locally.  But I suspect it's actually coming from when the ssh tries to
execute cvs on the remote side.

If you ssh to the server, is cvs in the path?

ssh -l mlarsen lovey 'echo $PATH'
ssh -l mlarsen lovey 'which cvs'  # or whence?

If you can't get cvs into the path, you can set the environment variable
CVS_SERVER to point to the full path of the cvs binary on the server.
