No.  cvs login opens a tcpip connection and sends your login
information.  If it succeeds it saves the password in
a file called .cvspass.  It then exits.

When you do another cvs command to the same repository it
opens the .cvspass file reads the password and then opens
a connection to the repository, using the stored password.
