This is working as designed.

The login and logout commands are used to tell CVSNT to cache the 
password for a particular CVSROOT.  If you run either outside a sandbox, 
when the CVSROOT environment variable isn't set, then that's what you get.

The local protocol doesn't support authentication, so therefore it 
doesn't support login or logout.
