What CVSROOT are you talking about? When used inside a sandbox, it defaults
to the CVSROOT stored in the Root file in the sandbox.

How do these scripts specify the sspi protocol?

Why do you run a cvs login? It's been ages that I did a login; with sspi
this shouldn't be necessary.

Tell a bit more about the environment (cvs ver), about how you run the
commands and where (repeatable command line sequences), look in your
CVS/Root files in the sandbox (they are hidden, so you may have to make
them visible for you), run failing commands with trace (and server trace)
on and post here.
