Your server is misconfigured.  First, check that you have a -f global
option on the command line in your /etc/inetd.conf.  If you do, you're
almost certainly running on Linux where processes started by inetd have
$HOME set (incorrectly) in their environment.  You need to change your
/etc/inetd.conf to either run a shell script that unsets that
environment variable and then invokes CVS, or you can use the env
command to run CVS with a pristine environment.  If you're running
xinetd rather than inetd, add "PASSENV = path" to your cvspserver config
