You are correct indeed, my problem is different. Also I think it might
be related to the use of the username "cvs" as an alias. I'll go down
that route.

I think this is a different problem since Gaurav can't login at all and
is not using an alias user.  Your problem is most likely either:
* the permissions on the repository directory (can the user 'cvs'
* poor names 

CVS, cvs, CvS, cVs - just don't use the name CVS: ANYWHERE EVER AGAIN
ANYTIME for a user, repository, alias, module, daughter, pet.  Or CVSNT,
or CVSROOT.  Try calling your user 'repo_user' and your repository
