This will depend upon the OS and, in the case of Linux, the distribution. On my system:


Seeing this and reading the askpass section of the ssh manpage and the
doc distributed with the package leads me to believe/guess that
ssh-askpass is used in an X (or other GUI) environment. If you're doing the emacs cvs call in a GUI, this could be the problem. Try doing it at the console-- i.e., go to runlevel 3 or, in X/Linux, do a Ctrl-Alt-F2 and run it there. So which OS are you using?

I am running it on an SGI supercomputer. Typing
 > echo $SSH_ASKPASS
SSH_ASKPASS: Undefined variable.

Try: env | grep ssh-askpass
and: env | grep /usr/bin
