CVS-Emacs not reading bash environments?

I have a strange problem. I'm running Emacs from CVS
(Debian-Snapshot) on a Debian Etch notebook with KDE.

Somehow Emacs doesn't recognize my default CVS repository (CVSROOT)
which is set in ~/.bashrc. 

M-x cvs-update aborts with the message:

Repository: ?????
Working dir: ~/somedir/

No CVSROOT specified! Please use the `-d' option.

The problem occurs when I start Emacs using an icon or the KDE
Startmenue or via Alt-F2. However, it works alright when I start Emacs
directly from the shell ($ emacs RET) or within the shell ($ emacs -nw

It's also working perfectly on my other two machines which have the
same setup but run an older Emacs snapshot (

How is it possible that Emacs doesn't read environments set in .bashrc
when started in the usual way programs are started in X? And how can I
solve the problem?

Thanks for help
