Upgraded cvsnt to 2.5.04 on my server, at which point it promptly
stopped working.  I can't seem to google anything remotely close to
the behavior I'm seeing, and all the files in /usr/local/etc/cvsnt
look fine to me, so hopefully someone has insight...


Try pserver locally:

[steve at aire ~/cvsnt_test]$ cvsnt -z9 -q -t -d:pserver:steve at localhost/fd login
16:56:10:   -> Tracelevel set to 1.  PID is 65774

16:56:10:   -> main loop with CVSROOT=:pserver:steve at localhost/fd
