It's working now. For everybody who is curious, here is how to set it up:

* get the WinCVS zip-archive from http://www.cvsgui.org
* extract cvs.exe/cvs95.exe (dependent on your system) and msvcp60.dll to,
say, C:\CVS
  (The GUI is actually also worthwhile. But the above suffice for the
command line.)

* get SSH from
* extract the contents to, say, C:\SSH

* open a DOS shell and type the following commands:
  > cd C:\SSH
  > md .ssh
  > ssh-keygen -C address@hidden -f C:\SSH\.ssh\identity
  When asked for a passphrase and you just hit ENTER, you won't be asked
every time
  on CVS connections.

In C:\SSH\.ssh have been created 2 files now: identity (private key) and
identity.pub (public key), and maybe random_seed, too.

* visit https://savannah.gnu.org/account/login.php and log in with your
Savannah account

* go via 'Account Configuraation' to 'Edit Registered Keys'

* paste the contents from C:\SSH\.ssh\identity.pub into the appropriate
field and klick on OK
  (Keep in mind that you'll probably have to wait an hour to be able to log
in with this key.)

* Write a batch file

Here is a working example:

rem --- start of file
@cd C:\gnubg
@if not exist gnubg.c goto ERROR
@echo Updating GNUbg...
@set HOME=C:\SSH
@set CVS_RSH=C:\SSH\ssh.exe
@set CVS_ROOT=:ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/gnubg
C:\CVS\cvs.exe -z9 address@hidden:/cvsroot/gnubg update -P -d
@echo *** An error occured.
@goto EXIT
@echo CVS update of gnubg successfully finished.
@echo Exiting batch file.
rem --- end of file
