Client version            => 2.0.61         
Frontend                  => Command Line    
Operating System          => WinXP           
Server version            => 2.0.61 and 2.0.62

I want to use new user which does not exist in Operating System. I have created a file
CVSROOT\passwd. In it, I put that:

In command line, I do those:
	set CVSROOT=:pserver:tom at
	cvs login

When I input bad passwd, it show that:
	cvs [login aborted]: authorization failed: server rejected
 to /repo for user tom

However, when I input correct passwd, I can't login successfully and it shows that:
	Fatal error, aborting.
	cvs [login aborted]: administrator: no such user

I have tried to modify the sources, but it doesn't success.
