vc-dired doesn't contact server (was Re: Adding 2006. + VC/PCL-CVS)

Following Stefan's point:

I tried vc-directory on a file that I had changed:

nickrob/24 cvs status ChangeLog
Enter passphrase for key '/home/nickrob/.ssh/id_rsa':
File: ChangeLog         Status: Needs Merge

   Working revision:    1.9144
   Repository revision: 1.9146  /sources/emacs/emacs/lisp/ChangeLog,v
   Sticky Tag:          (none)
   Sticky Date:         (none)
   Sticky Options:      (none)

and got:


  -rw-r--r-- (modified) Feb 16 08:58 ChangeLog

but had expected:


  -rw-r--r-- (merge) Feb 16 08:58 ChangeLog

vc-cvs-repository-hostname gave "cvs.savannah.gnu.org" for that directory and
I was connected to the internet at the time, but I know it wasn't contacted
because I wasn't prompted for a password.

Is there a variable that makes vc contact the server?
