What advantages do you find with pserver over rsh?  (well, I use ssh since
experience makes me too paranoid to use rsh but...) 

I found my problem.  /usr/local/bin/cvs _was_ first in my path, I _was_
setting CVS_SERVER, but the silly script was just running
"cvs" and my path wasn't getting set correctly for non-interactive shells
because I'm stupid and bash is stupid.  Sigh.  /usr/bin/cvs outputs a
different format for the status command, which couldn't find.

Do others get the correct log message template (eg. "Reviewed by:" line
there, etc.) when committing remotely using rsh?  What happens for me is
that I get what looks like a default one without the "Reviewed by:", etc. 
lines.  From the trace output, cvs later tries to start vi on _taz_ (with
the template there?), which quickly fails because I don't have a pty.
