easily find with google:
"unrecognized auth response" errors are caused by a bad command line in
`inetd.conf', typically an invalid option or forgetting to put the `pserver'
command at the end of the line. Another less common problem is invisible
control characters that your editor "helpfully" added without you noticing."
What is your exact server line in /etc/xinetd.d/cvs (The one shown above is
for sure not correct) ?
