What happens when you log in on the local unix box with the *same* user
and password as you're trying to use on the Windows box?  My guess is
that that doesn't work, either.  If the "different user" you tried
logging in as is a system user and you haven't specified SystemAuth=no
in your CVSROOT/config file, the passwd file format may well be wrong
but the login is succeeding because of system authorization.  If the
file format is correct, then the encrypted password for that user
doesn't match the password you're trying to use.
