Instead of:

        env = HOME=/home/cvs

it is much better is to specify:

        passenv = PATH

(i.e., don't pass $HOME to the server at all).

The daemon is running as root when it starts. Then it drops priviledge to the user's level. Unfortunately, it still trys to look in root's home directory for .cvsignore, but as it is now running as a normal user, it cannot.

The PATH has nothing at all to do with this problem.
