Well, normal if you are trying to do rsh-based cvs. :-)

Under (t)csh that's setenv CVS_RSH ssh

There's no ":pserver:" in that declaration, so you're not doing
pserver-based cvs, so the login command doesn't do any good. That's what
cvs is trying to tell you.
I'd recomend using the ssh-based cvs you're now using. That way you can
easily tell if anyone tries to impersonate the anoncvs server (which is
why we have it set up that way). If someone does try to do something
naughty, ssh will complain.
