That's almost certainly your problem -- unless you've added passwd to
the checkoutlist file, you don't actually have a $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd
file, you only have the corresponding RCS file
($CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd,v).  Like the manual says, the passwd file is
usually edited in place because there are serious security implications
if you put it in CVS.  Unless you understand what they are, I strongly
advise that you *not* use CVS to manage the passwd file.  Perhaps you
should re-read the relevant section of the manual:
