That means that either the <directory> does not exactly match one of the
server's --allow-root= options, the <username> is not a valid user, or
the password you used was incorrect.  It has nothing whatsoever to do
with the permissions on any particular directory.  CVS tries to log
authorization failures using syslog() using the DAEMON and AUTHPRIV
facilities, so check your system logs for more info.
