No, I think you pretty much got it.  I think the question here is why is 
that reg entry necessary for cvsnt.  For the other apps it makes sense, 
it's just like the WinCVS setting you mention from the Workspace Manager 
perspective.  If I had to guess there was some issue with the search 
path / exe location / optional DLL's / etc. such that this was the 
cleanest way to fix it, but that's just speculation.
