If you are working on a sourceforge project, you need CVS_RSH to be
"ssh.exe" or equivalent. If your "corporate CVS repository" is using
RSH, then you need CVS_RSH to be "rsh.exe" or equivalent.

To me honest, I really don't understand why the TortoiseCVS user is
using rsh in the first place. AFAICT there was only one TortoiseCVS user
that was doing this. Francis, did you ever ask him why he can't use any
other protocols?
