I ran into this myself awhile back.  I never found out what the problem
was, but discovered I could work around it by using the "pserver"
access method, rather than ssh.  To do that, you need to set
CVSROOT thusly:

% setenv CVSROOT

then do a 'cvs login'  (passwd is anoncvs)

If you've already got a CVS tree checked out, you need to change
the tree's idea where the root is.  There's an easy way to do this
that I can never remember, so I do it this way,  :)

% echo >/tmp/Root
% find /usr/src -name Root -exec cp /tmp/Root {} \;

As far as the *real* problem, perhaps a problem with the ssh binaries
or cvs binaries on
