That indicates that you're not running CVS as root (from [x]inetd).  If
you want CVS to change to the correct user/group for the user, you have
to run it as root.  If you don't run it as root, you have to use the
CVSROOT/passwd file to map all of the CVS users to the system user
you're running CVS as.
