The file ".cvspass" seems to be created on Linux systems only. When I use
WinCVS running on "MS Bluescreen" to connect to a pserver I can't find any
file like ".cvspass" anywhere on my harddisks.

Does WinCVS store the password at all or does it just keep it in memory? What
about other IDEs like Eclipse? Has anyone experience with this concerning
password management?
