What connection method do you use? If it's pserver, is your server
running in a chroot jail?

If I were to debug this, I'd start by placing the script in
$CVSROOT/CVSROOT and see if that works. If it does, then I'd add a
command to the script:
ls /var/lib/cvsd/bin/

and see if that works. If not, I'd see if I could ls the cvsd directory,
then the lib directory, and so on, right back to / and see what I get there.
