Double check you've exported your CVSROOT.

It is exported.

Also try
cvs -d $CVSROOT
which should also work.

That works.  This doesn't work (shell is ksh):

  CVSROOT=:ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot cvs diff

That's trying to force the environment setting at the
command level.

All of these seem to indicate that CVSROOT, while set, is
not being looked at.  I know, however, that as another user
I log in as it is being used because I've had to change it.
The difference seems to be that the user where it doesn't
work is the only one running commands on the server as a
different user.  But that all works if I specify CVSROOT
explicitly via '-d' options.  I'm thinking maybe there could
also be some setting that overrides CVSROOT but not '-d' --
like something in a preferences file or something?
