I don't remember my reasoning behind using env = HOME= vs passenv = but a
guess is that you specifically want to unset the HOME environment variable.
"passenv" (at another guess) is very restrictive ( passing only the tne
variables listed ) and "env" can explicitly set (or unset i.e. HOME=)

So, at another guess, using "passenv=" agessively unsets all environment

What I found on is the following:

service cvspserver
        socket_type             = stream
        protocol                = tcp
        wait                    = no
        user                    = root
        passenv         =
        server          = /usr/bin/cvs
        server_args             = --allow-root=/cvs/isaac pserver

This configuration works wonderfully, although I'm not entirely sure what
leaving "passenv" null actually does.

Again, it is much better to use:

        passenv = PATH

(plus whatever other environment variables you want to pass to the
server but *not* HOME) instead.
