You do realize that CVS's passwd file doesn't have the same fields as
/etc/shadow, don't you?

Yes, there's something wrong with your xinetd configuration.  Check your
syslog for error messages and/or run xinetd in debug mode.  Here's what
the current development version of the manual has to say about xinetd:

If your system uses xinetd instead of inetd, the procedure is slightly
different.  Create a file called '/etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver' containing
the following:

service cvspserver
   port        = 2401
   socket_type = stream
   protocol    = tcp
   wait        = no
   user        = root
   passenv     = PATH
   server      = /usr/local/bin/cvs
   server_args = -f --allow-root=/usr/cvsroot pserver

(If cvspserver is defined in '/etc/services', you can omit the port
