Because "$CVSROOT" in your environment is not set correctly. You have
obviously included the string ``:local:'' somewhere in there, which is

Your mailer has wrapped the text, rendering it almost useless, but
that's ok in this case. Please try to find out if there's an option to
turn off this wrapping for future posts though.

This list looks ok. I think your only problem is the wrong value of
$CVSROOT. Try setting CVSROOT in your environment to include *ONLY* the
path to the CVS root directory.
For /bin/sh or GNU bash, this would be:
$ export CVSROOT='/home/cvs/cvsroot'
For csh(1) the equivalent is:
% setenv CVSROOT /home/cvs/cvsroot
If this works fine, then make sure you also update any shell startup
files that include the old CVSROOT value, and you're set to go :)
