That sure looks like the standard error message.  Are you sure you are sending 
right user name?  You said you move the CVS repository.  Are you sure your ssh 
still forwarding the connection to the correct machine and not to another 
without your
name in the password file?  Are you sure the repository root (--allow-root=...) 
changed and is it still being specified correctly to the pserver command?

Play with CVS_CLIENT_LOG and see if you can trace more of the authentication.
