Under Windows (U/Win) I tried exporting CVS_CLIENT_LOG as
d:/home/luke/cvs-client.txt and tried to cvs login.  I couldn't
find a file whose name included the string cvs-client.txt on any local
drive.  (D: is a local drive.)

I also tried setting it to just plain "cvs-client.txt".  Same result.

On Linux, I tried setting it to /tmp/xxx and CVSROOT as:


Then did a cvs login (which succeeded, BTW), but no /tmp/xxx file
had been created.

I did a strings on the Windows cvs.exe and on /usr/bin/cvs on Linux,
and both have CVS_CLIENT_LOG, so I assume the facility works similarly
as in the source to cvs 1.10.8 that I have handy: it just opens
$ and $CVS_CLIENT_LOG.out and writes in there.

But nothing's happening.

Obviously I'm dramatically misunderstanding how you're supposed to use
CVS_CLIENT_LOG.  Can someone enlighten me?
