The repositories can have different settings.  Look for differences in the
config file in their respective CVSROOTs (specifically SystemAuth), and if
you're using READERS or WRITERS.

Also note that unless your credentials are different on the server than what
you logged in with locally, you don't need to include "username@" in the
cvsroot (-d) parameter.
