Or just never "logout". The only "state" from a cvs login command that
makes you "logged in" is an encrypted form of your password stored in
the .cvspass file in your home directory, and although I haven't
looked, I'm guessing that all "cvs logout" does is to erase the
appropriate line from that file.

Just do cvs login once, then never do it again - then your script can
do the update and nothing else.
