CVSROOT is saved in the CVS/Root file for each directory. This is the
way cvs is designed and it makes sense for me.
This way it is possible to have several subdirs (modules) from
different repositories and issue an update/etc. in one single run.

Why do you want to checkout your sandbox using account A and commit
changes using account B ??? I see no sense.

Best regards,
