Re: cvs pserver auth

I am currently using pserver on our system and yes, when the account password 
is disabled, the user can still perform CVS commands.  This is a feature in my 
opinion as I do not wish users to have direct access to the CVS server, so one 
of the first things I do is disable the password after creating the account.  
To lock a user out of CVS, I remove the users entry from the <CVSROOT>/passwd 
file.  The other alternative is to remove the user from the system all together.

I use OS user id as cvs user id. And we use pserver auth method. I find that
when the password of the OS id expired, cvs user still can login to cvs.
Even the password is inactive, user still can use cvs. 

Is this a bug for cvs? Or is it a feature for pserver?
