If one of them is the server then it will rely on that location.

'location of the cvs.exe' is too simplistic - it only works for cvs.exe 
itself.  Other applications which want to use parts of cvs need to know 
where they are (for example the control panel won't work at all without 
this registry entry)... indeed where the cvs.exe is to execute commands. 
  It's a property of the API not of cvsnt itself.

You can override it for a single command (the OSX version uses this.. it 
seems to be implemented for Win32 too although I've never used it) using -L.
