author name vs. uid

i have a linux server with cvs. the cvs users are only allowed to access the
repositories remotely over ssh. i use a cvs-wrapper that chroot the user. in
the chroot environment i noticed, that i do not need a <chroot>/etc/passwd
and <chroot>/etc/group file. in the chroot i do not allow the user to have a
shell etc. the only command the remote user can do is a cvs! so fare
everthing works fine.

my only problem is, that the userid gets no expanded to the username!

e.g. will i receive an author "uid506" instead of the username "lhanack"

may this be a cvs problem or is it (just) a system thing? i'm wondering, why
i do not need the fake passwd and group files to let cvs run nearly perfect.

tia, leif
