No, CVS is overly aggressive in removing trailing slashes from CVSROOT. 
It does that so that it can do simple string comparisons on file names
and not have to worry that /a//b and /a/b really name the same file.  I
don't think anyone ever considered that chroot makes using / as CVSROOT
a reasonable thing to do.
