Global option ignored

I'm quite sure I just read about this recently but I can't find a mail 
it again.

We just set up a new repository and tried to work with it. Goes fine except
some errors I couldn't resolve yet.

Server: cvs 1.11.9
Client: cvs 1.12.1
(both Linux)
inetd.conf: cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/cvs cvs
(-f) --allow-root=/home/cvsroot pserver

I have checked out a project and when I do update I get this:

address@hidden:~/cvssources/indel/incointerface$ cvs -n update
cvs server: WARNING: global `-l' option ignored.
cvs server: cannot open /root/.cvsignore: Permission denied
? aclocal.m4
cvs update: cannot open /root/.cvsignore: Permission denied
cvs update: Updating .
cvs update: Updating docu
cvs update: Updating src

I know that the -l was removed from recent versions but I never created or
changed a .cvsrc file. Can I prevent this error except by upgrading the
cvs tools?

The .cvsignore error I read up on in the manual and added the initially
missing -f switch to inetd.conf. Then the error changed to:

cvs server: cannot open /dev/null/.cvsignore: Not a directory

Do I need to create a home dir for the user cvs?
