"logging in" to cvs means creating a ~/.cvspass file. It doesn't alter
the CVS/Root file(s). (Actually it does, in some versions, but with
the current development version it doesn't. It never changed more than
the top CVS/Root file, in any case.) You'll need to either add the
"-d" to every invocation of cvs-- you could simply alias "cvs" to "cvs
-d $CVSROOT"--or change all the CVS/Root files--e.g.: "echo $CVSROOT >
Root && find /usr/pkgsrc -name Root -path \*CVS\* | xargs cp Root".
