You almost certainly have a line-ending problem.  I suspect the above
message is really:

        cannot access /var/cvs<CR>/CVSROOT

the embedded <CR> is the problem.  I suspect the CVS/Root file in your
working directory has DOS-style line endings (<CR><LF>) but the cygwin
CVS has been configured to use Unix-style line endings (<LF>).  Your
other problems are probably due to using an RSH that converts line
endings when CVS expects it to pass binary data transparently.

It's not denial.  I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.
