OK, sorry  if I've been rude, now  I understand the problem  and I think
you  both (Kai and  Stefan) are  right. Do  you have  some link  or more
information so I can send to the package maintainer? 

Maybe help me to describe the  problem with enough precision. I like the
way Stefan points it: 

                     "it's got  to do  with envvars not  being inherited
                     everywhere.   It can  screw up  any program  in any
                     number of ways".

Thanks for your help

The problem is that you put "export CVS=ssh" into some shell init file
(~/.bash_profile or ~/.profile, I guess) and that it didn't take
effect for programs started under Gnome or whatever you're using.

At least that's my understanding.

The problem has nothing to do with CVS_RSH, it's got to do with
envvars not being inherited everywhere.  It can screw up any program
in any number of ways.  Typically you get problems like

   "I can start `foo' just fine from the shell, but Netscape says it
   can't find it"
