(Hopefully) simple $CVSROOT question

I am trying to use the Apple Rendevouz name (myServer.local) of my server in my cvs root path, and have been almost succesful. Using cvs -d :ext:myServer.local/whatever/path/cvsrep works great, just like setting the CVSROOT environment variable to myServer.local/whatever/path/cvsrep

However, when I do any work from the sandbox (i.e. status), I get the message:

"cvs <command>: ignoring CVS/Root because it does not contain an absolute pathname"

The command works however, as expected.

Unlike when I checkout with -d, the Root file does not contain an access method. It seems I can not set the access method (:ext:) in the CVSROOT environment variable, and I have found no other place to set it. This is more of an inconvenience than an error, but does anyone have an idea what I could do about it?
