The behavior is interesting.  If I do not specify a passfile, then CVSPASS 
adds entries to C:\Documents and Settings\Scott Ellsworth\.cvspass, as I 
would expect.

The cvs task, though, does not pick up the password from that file.  This 
may be because I am using 1.1.10, rather than the more recent 
1.1.12a.  ( seems to be down, or I would try the upgrade.)

If I specify passfile="./cvspass", then everything works quite happily.

It is likely better to have the passfile be local to the build anyway, but 
thought it an interesting note, and something to watch out for if you are 
so unfortunate as to be working on Windows.

Thanks again to the several people who have pointed out the extra space in 
my earlier build.xml file.
