I'm getting some strange things happening with build 2053...

For some reason, the CVSROOT environment variable isn't being picked up

 $ cvs ls
cvs ls: CVSROOT "CVSROOT" must be an absolute pathname
cvs [ls aborted]: Bad CVSROOT.

But its correctly set:

dsomers at garamond ~ $ echo $CVSROOT

And if manually specified, works correctly:

dsomers at garamond ~ $ cvs -d $CVSROOT ls
Listing modules on server


It looks like something has gone SNAFU in src/main.cpp ... I see you've
stopped using getenv and now use CProtocolLibrary::GetEnvironment...
