FWIW, you do not need to login each time you run a command. Login is only
needed once when connecting for the very first time to a repository. After
that your login credentials will be cached within the ~/.cvspass file.

Actually I don't see why these steps should ever happen. I have never seen a
popup I had to close manually nor any kind of confirmation message after a
commit.  What exactly do those windows/dialogs say?
What exactly are you doing? From where are you executing those commands?
-what OS (on the client)?
-what CVS versions (run cvs ver)?
-if you're running the commands from inside a GUI frontend (e.g WinCvs),
what version of that app are you using?
