That's fine -- I just wanted to be sure you weren't trying to use
/etc/shadow without having modified it.  However, there really isn't any
point in doing that -- you can get exactly the same result by using
SystemAuth=yes in your CVSROOT/config file (which is the default) and
not having a CVSROOT/passwd file.

No, that keeps xinetd from passing a bunch of (generally incorrect)
environment variables to CVS.  It says to only pass $PATH and nothing

Did you remember to restart xinetd or send it whatever signal causes it
to re-read its configuration data after adding your cvspserver file?
