Somehow $TMPDIR for CVS is set to /root/tmp which is, of course,
incorrect.  Unless you have something goofy in your [x]inetd
configuration for CVS, that implies that your [x]inetd is running things
with a goofy environment (something Linux systems are notorious for). 
If you're running xinetd, add "passenv = PATH" to the configuration file
for CVS; that will clear everything out of the enviroment except for
$PATH.  If you're running inetd, look at the env command and use it in
your inetd.conf to run CVS with an empty environment.
