[Newbie question] When LOGIN fails

Today I was working with a repository at the other end of an SSH tunnel.

My CVS LOGIN was rejected: "server denied access to ${CVSROOT}"

However, while experimenting with Xemacs/PCL-CVS I requested to STATUS,
and then to UPDATE my directories.  Both functions apparently worked.

Does this indicate that the login only applies to a comit?
Is this by design, or is it a big security hole?
